Register for this webinar to explore how you can support more black students study A-level Law.

In 2020, half of young black students in the UK said that some of the biggest obstacles they faced in attaining success were cost, a lack of extracurricular support and their teachers' perceptions of them. According to the Solicitors Regulation Authority in 2022, the overall proportion of Black, Asian and minority ethnic lawyers working in law firms was 18%, with only 3% being black. It has also been found that approximately 90, or just 1% of partners at major UK law firms (firms with 10+ partners) identify as Black (Solicitors Regulation Authority, 2022). There are nearly five times more Asian partners than Black partners, and 90% of the 13,403 partners at major law firms in the UK identify as White.

This session will provide practical tips, guidance and resources to help you remove the barriers black students may face when deciding to study A-level Law, whilst improving their chances of progressing to study Law at university or through the legal apprenticeship route. Abi Adeboyejo, an experienced A-level Law teacher, examiner and founder of The Tyro Lawyer, a mentoring programme for school and college students, will share her insights and experience on the following topics:

 

  • Identify and gain new strategies to motivate black students to engage in A-level Law and the legal profession.
  • Explore agencies and platforms for enrichment and support for all students interested in a career in the legal profession.
  • Learn how to develop employability skills to successfully complete applications for university, apprenticeships and work experience, for black students interested in a career in the legal profession.

This session is essential for any Law teacher who wants to make a difference in the lives of their black students.

What teachers are saying...

  • The whole approach is making our children more excited and interested in reading, which is the best thing you could ask from a reading scheme.
    Pete Richardson
    Deputy Headteacher, Walton le Dale Primary Schoo
  • SNAP Maths is a game changer for identifying specific learning needs and then taking steps to help children improve their fluency in important building blocks for good numeracy.

  • I particularly liked that this resource gives more than just a reading age. Standardised scores and information on literal comprehension, vocabulary, analysis, and inference strands of reading are invaluable to begin to understand each student’s needs.

    Director of English and Literacy, Ryburn Valley High School
  • Springboard Science is such an innovative approach to curriculum from Hodder Education. They backed Adam Boxer and the author team to develop things in a different way: resources are carefully sequenced, closely tied to the curriculum, and support teachers to plan lessons without being overly prescriptive.

  • My pupils like the way they can follow the content to help them with structuring their unit reports and the content itself prompts them with what they need to include to achieve top marking bands.
