ABOUT BSC MENTORS

Many students, through no fault of their own, are unable to reach their full potential. They are unable to access corporate spaces or resources that would allow them to make the best decisions regarding their future. In light of this inequality, BSC Mentors was born. Our work provides students with resources and direct channels to commercial law firms so that they can thrive in these spaces. We are keen on letting students know that their success should not be determined by their background or their postcode.


Our commercial law team have all experienced the benefits of mentors and role models throughout their educational journeys. The know-how they have accrued from operating in this space for over a decade collectively is what they intend to pass onto both sixth form and university students.
