London Law Fair 2020

The London Law Fair is designed to encourage more diversity in people joining the legal sector. If you’re a student thinking about a career in legal services, it’s a chance for you to get practical careers advice from practising lawyers.

The event is usually hosted at the Law Society, and is London’s only ‘open access’ law fair. Due to restrictions on events, in December 2020 the fair instead involved a range of online activities.

We ran webinars on how to develop your career, and one-on-one CV clinics between students and careers advisers. 

Application masterclass

Nadine Lewis, a careers consultant at Loughborough University London, has recorded an on-demand webinar on completing applications for training contracts for solicitors and barristers. This covers:

  • identifying firms/organisations to apply to
  • best ways to complete application forms
  • sample questions from applications, what they really mean and how to best answer them
