Todays Children Tomorrows Lawyers (TCTL)

OPEN NOW CLOSED  N/A

 

The Today's Children, Tomorrow's Lawyers programme is primarily targeted at ethnic minority and disadvantaged 13-to-19-year-olds but includes those in full-time education but pre-university. We work with schools in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds.

Why are we running the Today's Children Tomorrow's Lawyers Programme?

The experience of many qualified black minority ethnic (BME) lawyers is that during their schooling their career advisers actively discouraged them from pursuing a career in Law. The view held by some career advisers is that working within the legal profession is beyond the reach of BME children and that such children should be more realistic in their choice of career. For children, this negative advice may be further compounded by the lack of support by those close to them. Experience has, however, shown that those who disregarded such negative advice and receive support have gone on to have successful legal careers. BLD believes there is a need to mentor and support young people through schools and universities to empower them to make sound career choices. Young people need to feel confident about their chosen career and have the opportunity to seek guidance from experienced practitioners.The aim of this scheme, therefore, is to target young participants, arm them with information, raise their expectations, support their aspirations and make the aspirations a reality.
