our vision

We want to work with students, universities and corporate partners to inspire ‘future lawyers’ not only to participate in our programmes and assist our clients, but to join us in creating and sharing even more pro bono and learning experiences as an integral part of their own journey. Working alongside the clinic team, as well as junior and senior practitioners our goal is to help students carve out their own unique pathway into the law, based on merit and demonstrating a positive and lasting contribution to pro bono and access to justice.

Our team

Everyone in the Sequentus team understands the challenges of making that leap from law student to practitioner. We’re all working on alternative routes into practice, whether it’s changing careers or straight from a degree. Whether we’re aspiring barristers or solicitors, our common goal is to share the opportunities we are creating as a team along the way. That’s what we’re doing next.
