This Conference is aimed at PreIB and IB 1 (Year 11 to Lower 6th/Year 12) students who might be considering studying Law at any English or Welsh University. We know it is a matter of major concern to all students as to what career prospects there are after committing so much time and resources to a University degree.
The aim of the Conference will be to give students some feel for Careers in the Law. It will cover:
- The nature and uses of a Qualifying Law Degree.
- What life at the Bar is really like.
- What life as a Solicitor is really like.
- What opportunities exist outside the profession – the public and private sector
If you would like to book a space you need to email Concordia.firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 20th May.
