We see mentoring as a key element of achieving this aim, and the role of the mentor will be hugely valuable to the successful applicants throughout their qualification process.

Lawscot Foundation mentors are solicitors or trainee solicitors who support, encourage and guide students – known as ‘mentees’ - through their legal education journey as they make the transition from school to university, then later into the workplace.

We are currently looking for individuals who are interested in becoming a mentor for the Lawscot Foundation.  Full training will be given (24 August 2017)  and it’s a great opportunity for mentors to develop their own skills and network. If you are based in Scotland and are either a trainee solicitor or a solicitor and wish to become a mentor please complete the application form and send it to Heather McKendrick heathermckendrick@lawscotfoundation.org.uk by 5pm on Monday 31 July 2017.
