With a rich calendar of career-focused activities, and strong collaboration between the Careers Service, the school, our alumni and student organisations, you will graduate fully equipped to fulfil your career aspirations, in our outside of the law.
Work Experience and Mentoring
The core curriculum is richly supported by opportunities to participate in pro bono work, or secure an internship, pupillage or mentor.
Able to think critically, you will graduate as an inquiring individual with a rich appreciation of law in business and society - and possess the skills employers are looking for.
Advice and Networking
With an enviable reputation for excellence, our students are proactively targeted by City firms and local and regional practitioners.
The Law School works very closely with the Careers Service throughout the academic year to offer a wide range of events to promote careers within and outside of the law.
Each year we invite senior judges, barristers and partners in leading law firms to give guest lectures through our Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series.
The activities developed and supported by our careers and employability team will help deepen your knowledge, enrich your experience and fast-track your development.
