Careers in Law Conference at the University of Buckingham – 22 June – Book your place now



buckingham-logoBuckingham law conference 2016

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:

  1. The nature and uses of a Qualifying Law Degree.
  2. What life at the Bar is really like.
  3. What life as a Solicitor is really like.
  4. What opportunities exist outside the profession – the public and private sector

If you would like to book a space you need to email  by Friday 20th May.
