Location: Amphitheate, The Sir Ian Wood Building

Life at RGU
The law careers and employability fair gives LLB and Diploma in Professional Legal Practice students and alumni the opportunity to find out how to secure legal work experience and traineeships.

The Law Careers and Employability fair is a great opportunity for legal firms, and other related organisations, to promote themselves and the opportunities they offer to our students.  

If you are a 3rd or 4th year law student, or a student on the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice, this is a great opportunity to make contact with law firms and find out about applying for traineeships.

If you are in Years 1 or 2, you may be interested in securing holiday/work experience in a legal environment, so this is a good time to start networking and making contacts. It is never too early to start finding out about different areas of the legal profession so you can start to plan your future career.

For students on the Law and Management course who are thinking about transferring into the LLB, this would also be a useful event to attend.

Cost to attend: Free
