City Law School is delighted to invite you to the 2017 Law Fair, sponsored by Erskine Chambers. This event is an ideal opportunity for you to network with key recruiters from the legal sector and gather information that will help you stand out from the other applicants.
The Fair is a rare opportunity to meet lots of companies, law firms and chambers within just a couple of hours. You will be able to learn all about the company’s application and selection process, as well as speaking with graduate trainees, solicitors, barristers and consultants. They can talk to you more about their personal experience when applying, as well as telling you about what they do. They are looking forward to meeting you!
