Explore Law event to be held in Bristol


The free event on March 13 is aimed at students currently studying their GCSEs, AS and A Levels and will give them the opportunity to find out what it really takes to study law at university and to work as a lawyer.

 

It offers interactive law taster workshops and will provide students with valuable information on the routes into a career in law and the wide range of legal jobs that are available. Students will also get the chance to put their questions to a panel of practising lawyers and College of Law students.

 

Also included in the Explore Law programme is a hands-on exercise to demonstrate how relevant law is to our everyday lives and an interactive taster session on contract law – one of seven subjects which all lawyers have to study as part of their LL.B law degree.

 

Students will also go home with tips on how they can get ahead in preparing for a career in law.

 

Kerry James, Head of the College’s Bristol centre, said: “Law is a sought-after profession which attracts the brightest and most talented of our young people. Preparation is the key. It gives people the best possible chance of achieving a legal career and it’s never too early to begin. Our free Explore Law events are designed to give aspiring lawyers a head start and help ensure that the legal profession benefits from the best talent by attracting people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.”
