Technology and Innovation week
The Law School works very closely with the Careers Service throughout the academic year to offer a wide range of events to promote careers within and outside of the law - and expose you to a variety of employers. Expanding your professional network allows you to make informed decisions about your career.
This year we will be providing an array of skills sessions as part of our themed week series during the Autumn term, coinciding with the central Careers Service recruitment fairs. At these events you will be given advice on becoming a solicitor or a barrister - and on how to get involved in other areas of law, such as family and medical law. There will be an emphasis on providing transferable skills, with additional skills sessions that explore alternative careers.
Technology and Law are at the cutting edge of research, making it an incredibly exciting field to work in. During Technology and Innovation week there will be a variety of events taking place including a session from a legal expert in company start-ups and entrepreneurship.
