Careers

The Law Society runs a number of events throughout the year to give you the information you need to make an informed decision about which career path to follow. We work closely with the careers advisor in the Law School (Professor David Milman) as well as university’s careers service (known as ‘Careers’). For a brief overview of what the careers service does click here.

You can find out about careers events, information and opportunities through the Law Society Facebook page, from which you can receive notifications, the weekly newsletter, as well as through the calendar which will be featured on this website.

We have arranged a number of useful workshops throughout the year focusing on:

  • Improving your CV
