Our Core Mission: To help law students build competitive legal CVs

Career and Academic Coach.

We match law students with ideal work experiences.

A dedicated platform for future barristers

How can we serve you?

We are committed to the future of the Bar- increasing access to it and making it more diverse.

Aspiring barristers are headed in the same direction but no two journeys are the same. We assign a unique P.A.L.* to each person- our revolutionary way of making each work experience recommendation tailored to your needs and circumstances. You can only do short-term placements? Then your P.A.L. will only guide you to these experiences and will  provide support throughout the process.

Every person deserves to have access to the information needed to become a barrister regardless of their background. Let us get you a P.A.L. for the journey!

Demystify the process

We are a team of barristers, lawyers and legal professionals who have deep insight into the profession. Those with meaningful connections at the Bar- a parent or a family friend- are more likely to progress within the profession. A lack of information results in weaker applications which in turn results in a less diverse profession.
We are committed to providing information which is needed by all aspiring barristers.

Save you time

We make your life easier. We combine excellent customer service and choose the work experience which fits best our clients.
In a recent survey, most aspiring barristers indicated that they struggled to choose the ideal work experience. This is in addition to not having enough time to search in the first place! We are easy to work with and the process allows you to achieve at your own pace.

Build Competitive Legal Portfolio

Knowing what to do is half of the work. Having a designated account manager and personal dashboard where all of your work experiences are neatly organised and easily accessible reduces stress and builds your confidence as your climb the ladder of success.

Popular Programs

We love that the Bar is advocating for increased diversity in the profession. Our response to the call for action is to provide each future barrister with the personalised tools they need to build competitive pupillage portfolios regardless of their backgrounds.

Needed by UK
Law Graduates and Students

Align has created a space where information relevant to the progression of aspiring lawyers is easily accessible. It is the stepping stone we never knew we needed.

Align would have benefitted me during the LLB as I would have gained the necessary advice and guidance to be able to pursue the BPTC(Bar Course) at soonest.
K. Charles
As an international student in the UK with a dream of being a barrister I felt like I was dumped in the ocean with two options- sink or swim. This is because along with the pressure and stress of completing the course there is also a need to develop your CV. Align has been able to take off this additional burden and pressure for future barristers, by creating one area where you can be equipped with all that you need to develop your CV in order to further your career as a barrister. This means you now have more time for your studies.
C. Faucher
Align is a laudable idea, making information available to law students from non-traditional backgrounds facilitating access to the Bar.
