Black Antelope Law is pleased to announce that our Simao Paxi-Cato has been appointed as Programme Facilitator for the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn Griffin Access Programme.
The Griffin Access Programme (GAP) is a student development and careers advice programme for Year 12 and Year 13 students.
The overarching aim of the programme is to de-mystify careers at the Bar by providing an opportunity to meet and work with the members of the Inn and to provide practical advice to plot a route to the Bar for committed students. The Griffin Access Programme will differ from other schools’ outreach programmes run by the Inn in terms of the duration and contact students will have with the Inn’s members.
The Programme will be driven by the Barristers of the Inn (Programme Facilitators) and will act as a gateway to the career services of the Inn.
Simao is very excited to be part of this new initiative and considers that his role is an opportunity to further Black Antelope Law’s commitment to positive action in the legal profession and achieving a more representative profession.
