At Covington, we recognise the differences among us as an asset and a source of strength. We believe that excellence in the practice of law knows no racial, ethnic, gender, religious, sexual orientation, or other boundaries. We are therefore pleased to announce the launch of our 2021 mentoring programme, which is open to underrepresented groups to increase diversity and access to the legal profession.

Applications are open to law and non-law students from any underrepresented group (BAME, students with disabilities, LGBTQ+, first generation university students). We are also open to receive applications from other students who have faced adversity during their education. Applicants should be on track for a 2.1 degree.

What will the mentoring scheme involve?

  • A one-to-one mentoring relationship with a lawyer or trainee at Covington who will mentor you through the academic year via regular video calls
  • A virtual launch event to learn more about the mentoring relationship & Covington
  • Skills sessions throughout the programme focusing on upskilling
  • Receive expert advice from someone who has successfully navigated the legal career path
  • Build a relationship and receive support you whilst you juggle your degree alongside your legal journey

How to apply?

  • Applications run from 30 August-24 September 2021
  • Candidates should submit a CV and cover letter
  • Your cover letter should outline:
  • Why you are interested in a career in law
  • What you would like to achieve from the mentoring relationship
