Become a Mentor
Our scheme offers the opportunity to engage with and support our student community. By joining the scheme, you will mentor a student interested in your area of law, helping them to obtain real-life insights into the profession and support their career development.
Many of our mentors value the opportunity to contribute their time and energy to assist the next generation of legal professionals.
If you work in the legal profession and would like to join the mentoring scheme we run, please email email@example.com and mark the subject of your email as 'Leeds Law School'.
Law Fair and Networking Event
We host an annual law fair attended by both regional and national employers and also a networking event for our students and contacts in the legal profession. These events bring you closer to our students and graduates and offer them the opportunity to network and cultivate relationships with valuable professional contacts from the legal sector.

Sponsor a Prize
Our prize-giving schemes are an important part of the law school and offer you the opportunity to raise your firm or organisation's profile and brand within our student community.
We're constantly pushing students to perform at their very best, providing incentives and rewards along the way. If your firm would like to be involved with and sponsor one of our Leeds Law School prizes then we'd love to hear from you. This usually entails firms offering winning students a prize which can include a period of work placement or other valuable hands on experience within the legal profession.
We've worked alongside a range of local and national firms and organisations and are always striving to cultivate excellent working relationships with members of the legal community to enhance our student experience. To find out more please email firstname.lastname@example.org and mark the subject of your email as 'Leeds Law School'.
