We are the world’s leading professional law school and, with centres in Birmingham, Bristol, Chester, Guildford, London, Manchester, Leeds and a collaboration with The University of Exeter, we’re the first choice for aspiring future lawyers. Our innovative courses are designed and taught by lawyers, with a clear focus on building the practical skills, commercial awareness and independent thinking you need to succeed in the modern world of law.

What will this session cover?   

This is part 1 of our 2 part 'Springboard into Law' programme. This programme is for both Law and non-Law students and Part 1 focuses on vacation schemes and training contracts - It covers the graduate recruitment process, researching law firms and matching your key competencies to what employers are looking for!
