CLS Law Fair is on 28th October…what do I need to do before attending?
City’s Law Fair will be taking place on Wednesday 28 October in the Great Hall, College Building (main campus). This is one of our most popular career fairs and the University’s excellent employment and academic record as well as our high calibre students seems to attract more and more companies on campus every year!
The fair provides an excellent avenue for obtaining information about different career fields, specific company culture and work opportunities. Whether you are looking for a graduate job, a one-year placement, a summer internship or just some work experience come to our Law Fair and you will definitely find something for you there!
The Law Fair takes place from 2.30-4.30 (with VIP entry from 1.30) and remember – from 2-4pm, City University students and graduates can also use the fair to get their CV checked and receive professional advice from our careers team.
But…what exactly happens at a Law Fair and what can I do to get prepared beforehand?
First, attend the Top Tips session 2 days prior to the event. This will be run by the careers consultants and focuses on How to make the most out of the City law fair. Crucially attendance here also gets you the highly-prized VIP access to the law fair, an hour before everyone else. Find out more and book here.
