Rogers and Norton Law Academy
We were delighted with the recent coverage we received in the EDP concerning the Rogers & Norton Law Academy.
The final session was based on guidance and advice on developing and planning a career in the law. Solicitors Laura Rumsey and Charlotte Ranson together with Legal Executive Lauren Golder, all from Rogers & Norton, discussed routes to qualification in a Solicitors practice, whilst barrister Selina Bungsraz, from the East Anglian Chambers, discussed the process of being called to the bar.
The students from the four schools involved, Notre Dame High School, Wymondham College, Thorpe St Andrew High School and Langley School, were joined by parents and teachers for the final session. We received excellent feedback on the seven seminars we ran for the Academy, saying it proved an excellent opportunity for the students who found it very informative and confirmed their decision to study law at university.
We are already planning next year’s Academy and are looking to expand the number of schools involved in order to further inspire more students to pursue a career in law. The schools are already talking to pupils who would benefit from the experience and are keen to ensure they take part.
