Our Mission

Choosing what subject to study at university can be really difficult – not everyone knows exactly what they want to do in future!  Our aim is simple – we want to give young people interested in law a real insight into what studying the subject is like and the different career options within the legal field.

The course gives an authentic, in-depth experience of the world of law that students can draw on when writing personal statements or answering interview questions. Students can also ask any and every question they may have, and benefit from the expert advice of our tutors – they’ve all been there and done it!

Testimonials

Dear Mustafa, Osama and Maryam, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help last weekend. I really learnt so much and it did truly give me an insight into medicine which I will definitely remember. I not only learnt heaps of information about medicine and the application process to medicine but also had a really great time learning new skills such as suturing! If you could please pass on my thanks to the other tutors I would be most grateful. Best wishes and thanks again,
