As an academic who qualified as a solicitor after studying the LLB at Leeds Law School myself I was keen to be involved with the Law Career Mentor Scheme. I remember feeling anxious as a student about how, or if, I would ever obtain a coveted training contract. The training contract was an essential if I was to reach my ambition of becoming a qualified solicitor. Although I did not take the traditional route, I did succeed in my ambition and I have since been dedicated to encouraging and supporting students who also aim for a professional legal career.
