City Solicitors Horizons FAQ

What is City Solicitors Horizons?


City Solicitors Horizons ('CSH') is a programme where aspiring lawyers from under-represented and socially mobile backgrounds get access to work experience, mentoring, and weekly training with top law firms.




How long is CSH?


Three years.




How many candidates are there per cohort?


50.




Is the programme remote or in-person?


Due to restrictions, the programme is currently largely online. However, we aim to host events (and have been doing so) in-person with our sponsor firms and internally.




Do you have to have legal experience?


Not at all - and you certainly do not have to study a law degree. All we are looking for is a motivation to pursue a legal career.
