Our social mobility ambassadors promote role models from non-traditional backgrounds who have achieved their ambitions and are willing to support their peers within the profession and prospective solicitors.
We select 10 solicitor ambassadors bi-annually to share their experiences of entering the profession, including the challenges they faced and how they overcame them.
Reflecting on their career path, each ambassador gives practical tips and advice on pursuing a career in law, providing inspiration and valuable insight for students considering a career in law.
Through celebrating the success of our solicitor ambassadors, showcasing their achievements and sharing their stories, we hope to show that, regardless of social background, the profession welcomes talent, tenacity and a strong work ethic. Our ambassadors are inspiring proof of this.
Applications for 2019 ambassadors open in September 2019.
