Networking

Our students are provided with a range of opportunities to develop their links with the professions, with firms and practitioners from around the country regularly visiting the Law School to meet with our students.

Liaising with Lawyers event

This annual event welcomes practising solicitors and barristers from around the country to the Law School to give a series of talks on life in legal practice. Students are able to gain real insight into life in the professions and establish links with practitioners.

Law Careers Fair

This fair, organised in partnership with the Student Law Society, takes place annually and is aimed specifically at those students seeking to enter legal practice. Representatives from Law firms across the country attend and provide students with the opportunity to network and learn more about firms they are considering applying to.

Careers Dinner

Our annual Careers Dinner, organised with the Student Law Society, allows students to dine with partners and trainees from Law firms. The dinner is a unique opportunity for students to chat informally about their chosen career path, network with key contacts, and receive tips on the application process from the firms themselves.

Career Mentoring Scheme

This university scheme assigns students with a mentor who is an established professional in the students' career of choice and who provides them with advice and guidance in relation to their future career. Students are given the opportunity to spend time with their mentor, developing a relationship with them and getting an insight into what they do and how they got there.

Inns of Court Trip

For students interested in a career at the Bar, the Law School runs an annual trip to the Inns of Court where students can talk with current BPTC students as well as practising barristers about life at the Bar.
