"I am so glad that I participated in the mentoring scheme. Before joining the scheme I didn't really know where my future career was heading and I felt that I was lacking in guidance and confidence. My mentor was the perfect role model and helped me a lot by improving my CV, which consequently led me to secure two legal work placements." (Tasneem Uddin, 2nd year LLB Law student)
