A dedicated alumni
Our Alumni network is inspirational. Dedicated to nurturing the talent of each generation of law students, they provide careers advice and mentoring schemes, sponsor networking events, judge moots and and much more.
Our vibrant and award-winning student societies work closely with leading law firms, solicitors, members of the bar, our alumni and other legal networks to give you access to the very best careers advice and support.
The annual Law Fair welcomes around 80 leading international and national law firms, sets of chambers and professional legal education providers giving students an opportunity to discuss career opportunities at their respective organisations. A must for all law students.
Annual careers dinner
The annual careers dinner, organised by the Law Club, provides students with the opportunity to meet representatives from leading law firms over a three-course meal in one of Bristol's top restaurants. A great way to make connections and gain invaluable networking experience.
Attending our law specific careers sessions gives you the opportunity to hear first-hand from those working in the legal sector to help you develop sector-specific knowledge and skills to explore career options and become more successful in the recruitment and selection process.
