What is the DiversCity Mentoring Scheme?
We believe this is the first programme giving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) mentoring support from LGBT people to LGBT potential trainee solicitors.
The programme will provide you with access to an LGBT lawyer or senior business services person currently working in one of the 11 participating law firms and is open to all attendees of the DiversCity event held in 2017.
We are confident that this will be a valuable resource for you when making informed career decisions.
Please be aware you will need to attend the DiversCity in Law day long event in December to take part in the mentoring scheme.
A mentor will be able to provide you with insight into varying career paths, life at a City law firm, and how that fits with being LGBT.
We do not expect them to share confidential information in relation to their firms’ recruitment processes and this programme will not guarantee you access to a vacation scheme, training contract or similar.
The mentors will provide you with honest and experienced guidance on developing your legal career.
