Target Law for Teachers

The Target Law Mentoring Scheme is a two year long programme for Year 12 students from disadvantaged groups in non-selective state schools with the aspiration to enter a top law school.

About Target Law

The Target Law programme is designed for students from non-selective state schools within Greater London who meet selected eligibility criteria. Working with teachers and other educational professionals within schools is integral to the success of this programme. Teachers are key partners in raising awareness of UCL Laws and and a crucial part to play in facilitating fair access to opportunities and working with us to improve social mobility.

Target Law is a two year programme for Year 12 students from underrepresented backgrounds with the potential and aspiration to enter a top law school. The scheme takes places over two calendar years, starting from January in Year 12 and supporting participants through the entire UCAS application process. Participants will take part in ten mentoring sessions and have the opportunity to attend additional events at UCL Laws. 

Events for Teachers

We invite you to attend one of our webinars over the 2021/22 academic year to learn more about the Target Laws programme as we build up to launching the programme in September 2022. 

The next event will be held in September 2022.

This half hour session will detail the aims and content of the Target Laws programme and provide the opportunity to ask any questions you may have directly.

Mentoring Scheme 

Successful applicants will be paired with a current UCL Laws student who will act as their designated mentor throughout the programme.  

Mentoring Sessions 

Each session is designed to help participants prepare for and become a competitive candidate for top law schools. Mentoring sessions include information and support on: 

  • Preparing your application to Law school. 
  • Personal Statements 
  • LNAT preparation and practise 
  • Court Visit 
  • Sample lectures 

Students will also get feedback from mentors on submitted written work in order to properly prepare for the application process. 


Participants are expected to attend all events, which will take place in a combination of in person and online formats.
