I’m Chantal and I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Leicester studying English and History, entering the final year of my degree! I am beginning my applications to undertake the GDL after graduating and working towards gaining a training contract in the near future. I am keen to help other non-law students and hope that I can achieve this by sharing my experience whilst navigating the legal world without a law degree!
As a non-law student it can sometimes feel like you are isolated in your choice to pursue a legal career path.
As the start of 2018 approaches, so do an abundance of application deadlines – but where do we even start?
NationalLawLIVE is a one-day event filled with networking and unique workshops, and it was one of the most invaluable experiences I have attended thus far in my journey to a legal career.
Here are a few things I have taken into consideration when embarking on my applications for the GDL, which I believe are important for anyone heading the same way as I am!
Being a non-law student trying to navigate the legal world definitely has its challenges, but doesn’t everything?
