Proud to support the 'Discover Law' programme

14th September 2021

As part of our ‘Commitment to the Community’ initiative we are proud to support The University of Sheffield’s ‘Discover Law’ programme by offering a placement with Acclaimed Family Law. 
The programme is aimed at 16-17 year old students from widening participation backgrounds, who often face social and economic barriers to accessing higher education.
Help is provided through workshops on career pathways within the law, writing CVs, personal statements, and university applications. Work experience opportunities, with bursaries available for food and travel, are arranged as part of the programme for the students, who may otherwise struggle to secure placements as they do not have the financial means, connections, or confidence to approach Law firms.
