Full Event Details:

This programme has been carefully designed to help with students’ confidence, as well as to show them the many routes they can pursue within the legal profession. The programme will look at a range of different legal careers within each session & students will have to partake in activities that mimic the job the session focuses on. In doing so, students will be able to gain confidence within themselves which they can use going forward. Students will also be able to draw on the experiences of a previous law graduate which they can then use in their future endeavours.

The workshop will be a combination of in-school and on-campus and will take place over a period of 6 x 1hr sessions.
