UCL Laws Target Law Mentoring Scheme open for applications

6 September 2022

Applications are now open for Year 12 students from disadvantaged groups in non-selective state schools to join the mentoring programme, designed to prepare students for applying to study law at university.

A student is sitting at a table and looking at a laptop in front of her. Also on the table are lamps and a laptop charger plugged into a socket. In the background, there are some bookshelves and a student is sitting and studying.

Year 12 students are encouraged to apply to the Target Law Mentoring Scheme, 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.

Participants will take part in ten mentoring sessions and have the opportunity to attend additional events at UCL Laws. 

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 receive feedback from mentors on submitted written work in order to properly prepare for the application process.

The deadline for students to submit applications is 9am on Monday 31 October 2022 - visit the Target Law webpage for further information on the programme.

Please note the below application form is only for Year 12 students who wish to take part in Target Law.
