Careers & Employability

Support and guidance

All of our students are supported by a dedicated Careers and Employability team, which offers:  

  • one-to-one careers guidance 
  • employer-led workshops 
  • internship programmes 
  • Networking opportunities with  global law firms and other law-specific and non-law organisations.  

The School has two dedicated members of staff in the careers team who work solely with law students.  They offer interview practice and guidance, support with applications to vacation schemes and training contracts, and much more. 

All law students are automatically signed up to the Law at Work Careers Newsletter which provides all the up-to-date information and opportunities available through the service.
