Make a Difference Be the Difference Programme

Programme Dates


We recognise the importance of role models and run the Make a Difference Be the Difference mentoring scheme in which we match mentors and mentees. Please do see our Mentoring Programme Brochure and Mentoring Guidelines.



  • "It was extremely helpful and I particularly found both my mentors to be encouraging but realistic. They highlighted my areas of weakness but suggested way to overcome them, which was extremely useful." Arti Amin

  • "My mentors were fantastic! They were very helpful in guiding me through the application process for training contracts and even through the final months of my degree. I was also able to secure a work placement with one of my mentors at his law firm which was great experience." Ayomide Akin-Oteniya

  • "My mentor has been the greatest support to me in this whole journey of becoming a legal career. She helped me with CV, she gave me several mock interviews and she also recommended me for work experience at Reeds Smith." Dorcas Asuming

  • "The mentoring was great, it was very helpful to speak to someone who has been in the sector for years, and can provide that objective advice and information on all aspects of the training contract, from the application process down to the work/life balance." Wupya Nandap


There is a separate mentoring scheme within our Legal Launch Pad programme which applies only to the programme participants

If you would like to be a mentor, complete our Mentors form.
If you would like to be matched to a mentor, complete our Mentees form. Mentees, please note that we will contact you between 4-8 weeks as the demand for mentors currently outstrips supply. Please do be patient with us.

To provide further support, we also have TCTL video podcasts (vodcasts) about career in Law, CVs, Applications etc as well as our LLP video podcasts (vodcasts) covering interviews, preparing for interviews and the dos and don’ts.
