Access for all
The environment sector lacks diversity. At UKELA equality, diversity and inclusion are integral to our strategy. We are committed to improving access in the environmental law sector for all, regardless of race, sex, and other protected characteristics. Our mentoring scheme is a new programme of mentoring opportunities in the field of environmental law for those who would not usually be able to take advantage of such an opportunity. The scheme is funded via our Green Match Fund campaign.
2023 mentoring programme
This scheme will offer up to 5 mentoring placements in the period September 2023 to March 2024.
- Each placement will consist of 6 months mentoring support from a named mentor working in environmental law. This will include 5 days of hands-on experience (which need not be undertaken all at once).
- During your placement you might be shadowing your mentor at meetings, in court, and attending networking and CPD events, in addition to regular catch up calls.
- Financial support is a payment of £250 at the start of the placement. This is intended to cover your out of pocket expenses such as travel costs, help with caring responsibilities and enabling you to step back from paid responsibilities during the period of the scheme.
