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!

Staying positive as a non-law student

Trying to find your feet and secure the necessary steps to begin your legal career isn’t easy for anyone; which I think is one of the most important things to remember as a non-law student.
