Here at The Lawyer Portal, our aim is simple: to provide the definitive resource for everyone considering a career in law, whatever their stage or background.
We are officially partnered with the Bar Council and CILEx and are working closely with law firms & chambers to provide the most up-to-date careers advice, alongside exciting and useful events.
As a student ambassador of The Lawyer Portal, your role would be to promote the platform to people at your university – whether they are members of your law society, studying law or even other subjects.
Why Should You Become a TLP Ambassador?
- It’s a great opportunity for you to network with law students, lawyers and law firms across the country;
- An extra way to boost your legal CV and gain experience that will impress in applications;
- You can win great prizes – like Amazon vouchers – throughout the year;
- You will also have the chance to attend TLP events for free, meeting top law firms;
- You will connect with your university’s law students and help them secure their future law careers!
What Will You Be Doing as a TLP Ambassador?
TLP ambassadorial duties include:
- Running your own university Facebook group, sharing relevant TLP articles and encouraging university members to join;
- Contributing blogs and content for the website;
- Helping to promote, organise and speak at inspiring law events, like TLP Aspire;
- Participation in focus groups and market research;
- Other opportunities to represent TLP may arise throughout the year.
