TY students get insight into life in the law

An enthusiastic group of Transition Year students took part in the Solicitors of the Future programme at Blackhall Place this month.

This immersive programme for Transition Year (TY) students is open to schools around the country and places are highly-sought after.

 

The week-long programme encourages young people to consider a career in law and offers an insight into the role of a solicitor in practice.

Activities

Activities last week included a visit to the Criminal Courts of Justice, a tour of a large commercial firm, expert-led workshops, guest speakers, courtroom activities, a careers seminar and a mock trial.

Solicitors of the Future is led by the Diploma Centre team at Blackhall Place, but staff from all around the Society – along with members and other experts – contribute to the success of the programme.
