DON’T MISS THE CHANCE TO BE NAMED UK’S BRIGHTEST FUTURE LEGAL MIND!
Aspiring lawyers are being urged to submit their entries into a competition which will give a career boost to the country’s brightest Future Legal Mind.
The deadline is approaching for law students and those in the early days of their legal career to enter the Future Legal Mind Award.
The competition, now in its fifth year, is run by National Accident Helpline to give a boost to the fledgling careers of the nation’s most promising legal talent.
Aspiring lawyers have until 28th February to enter for the chance to receive a prize package including the opportunity to receive valuable mentoring and networking experience by meeting with a Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice.
The winner will also receive mentoring advice from experienced lawyers within the National Accident Helpline team, the chance to star in a showcase film highlighting their skills, and £2,000.
To enter, students and recently-qualified law professionals can submit a short essay to be reviewed by a judging panel, from which 10 entries will be shortlisted.
The shortlisted entrants will then each submit a short video to support their written response, which will be used by the judges to choose their Future Legal Mind 2019.
This year the entry criteria has been widened to enable those in the early days of their legal career who have achieved a legal qualification within the past two years to enter, as well as current law students.
Simon Trott, Managing Director of National Accident Helpline and chairman of the judging panel, said: “It has been heartening to see the impact which winning Future Legal Mind has had on the career paths of our previous champions.
“The prize package for 2019 offers our winner great opportunities to meet with experienced lawyers and kickstart their own career, so I’d encourage law students and those in the early days of their legal careers to submit their entry before 28thFebruary for the chance to be our next Future Legal Mind.”
