Legal Gateway

The Legal Gateway Scheme is the diversity access and social mobility scheme targeted at school children, sixth formers, undergraduates, graduates and postgraduate students previously run by BLD and now run by BLD Foundation, our charitable arm registered with the Charity Commission under registration number 1148365. 

The Scheme has a range of programmes providing access to an array of career and other development opportunities that includes mentoring, training workshops, debates, work placements, training videos, inspirational and other events delivered in partnership with schools and universities across the UK and sponsored by major law firms and Footsie 100 companies. 

Please see the BLD Foundation website for further information and the application process. To contact the Foundation please email admin@BLDFoundation.org

"BLD is an excellent resource to use to find out about workshops and open days at law firms that will help you find that illusive training contract.  There is a great support network and mentor programme that really works.  The BLD is an invaluable organisation to improve diversity in the legal profession."
