Aspiring Solicitors is delighted to be partnering with ALG again, to run the only legal social mobility Scheme in Northern Ireland. After resounding success over the last 2 years, ALG’s Belfast office will partner with Aspiring Solicitors in 2023 to deliver their second Aspiring Solicitors mentoring scheme, aimed at developing participants’ confidence, awareness and understanding of what is required to become a lawyer in Northern Ireland.

The scheme will be for 8 mentees and run from w/c 19 February-March 2024. It will be open to all socially mobile undergraduate students in Northern Ireland who are Aspiring Solicitors members and interested in pursuing a career in commercial law.
