Leeds Law Society Education Week

Leeds Law Society and Ahead Partnership are inviting law firms and legal professionals from across Leeds to take part in a summer of activity with local primary schools to help young people understand the variety of roles within the sector, meet role models from law and develop key skills for employment.  
Leeds Law Society Education Programme will take place for the tenth year in June and July 2023, delivering an exciting series of World of Work days that firms and legal professionals can sponsor and take part in.

There are opportunities for everyone to support this programme by sponsoring and taking part in the World of Work Days. Your involvement will help young people in a really practical way and help them to envision a more positive future.

All the activities in the programme are organised by Ahead Partnership with support and resources that help your colleagues get involved quickly and safely.

Why get involved?

Promote careers in law
You’ll profile the diverse range of roles and study pathways in the legal sector, sharing your own career journeys and broadening young people’s minds to the possibilities available to them in your sector.

Improve diversity
Your colleagues will help the city’s young people meet real working people from a range of backgrounds, allowing them to more easily see their place in the law/professional sectors.

Encourage social mobility 
World of Work Days are designed to help young people with little/no experience of professional services to achieve their aspirations and perhaps consider a career in law for the very first time.

How does it work?

There are opportunities for everyone to get involved regardless of the size of organisation.

We encourage firms to sponsor their own World of Work Day in a school in Leeds for their colleagues to take part in, but individual places on World of
Work Days are also available.
