Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

YLC is delighted to collaborate the VUW Law Students’ Society on
the YLC/VUWLSS Bridging the Gap Programme

Remember how daunting and confusing it was facing the end of your law degree and having to step out into the real world? We aim to address that.

The YLC and VUWLSS Bridging the Gap programme pairs up young lawyers in Wellington with law students from Victoria in their 4th or 5th year, to provide some basic mentoring and career guidance.

From there, we hope mentors and student buddies will forge relationships that will guide students through the transition from academic to professional life (and who knows, you might learn something too!)

If you’re interested in being involved, email us at This is a great way to give back to others in the Wellington community, so flick us an email and become part of the programme!
