Rare Foundations is our series of introductory career programmes for BME undergraduates in their first year of a three year course or second year of a four year course.

Rare Foundations: Law is a competitive programme for students interested in commercial law. The programme is run in conjunction with Clifford Chance, Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells and Linklaters.

This is an exclusive programme that will distinguish participants from their peers in an increasingly competitive market. Successful applicants will get a foot in the door and start building valuable relationships with partners, associates, trainees and graduate recruitment managers at four of the world’s best law firms. It will also mean that you have some of the top international firms’ names, alongside a prestigious programme, on your CV, before you go into your second term at university.

If you are selected for Rare Foundations: Law, you will have a one to one session with one of our expert coaches that will double as an interview for our extended development programme, Articles.

The programme is very competitive. You will need AAB or equivalent at A-Level, or at least 38 IB points. We will take into account contextual information and mitigating circumstances.

Applications for Rare Foundations: Law 2018-2019 will open on 3 September 2018 and close on 31 October 2018.
