We are experienced in helping those who are seeking to input into policy, engage with government decision makers or change the law. Navigating the world of Westminster, Whitehall, the plethora of public bodies and the media, our success in this area is because we know how to make the right arguments, to the right people at the right time. Our approach is to generate an evidence base using economic, consumer and political research as a platform for engagement with the media, government, regulators and the wider policy community.

In addition, we are looking for an applicant’s ability to cope with a demanding workload. Whilst taking a fourth AS-level or Extended Project is not required, the Law Department recognises the value of these additional subjects for providing useful skills and breadth of learning, and would encourage students to take up these opportunities where available. We understand, however, that not every student has the opportunity to complete a fourth AS or EP. Consequently, conditional offers will never include a fourth AS or EP, and students who are unable to take these additional qualification will not be at a disadvantage.
