    Legal Social Mobility Programme Graduation Ceremony

    Hosted by Microsoft, the Legal Social Mobility Partnership (LSMP) Graduation Ceremony brought together the 20 students, representatives from the law firms and commercial partners involved to celebrate the first LSMP work experience programme. Students had the chance to network before the ceremony which saw them speak about their experiences while on programme and receive a certificate to recognise their efforts.

    The LSMP is a collaboration of over 10 organisations, including four leading law firms and their clients, working together to provide high quality work experience and insight into the legal profession. The six students from our partner school, Central Foundation Boys' School, joined 14 others from three other London schools.
