Students from the University of Lincoln took a trip to the Nottingham Law Fair

Thursday, October 24, 2013

The event, held at the University of Nottingham, provided students from across the country with the chance to meet high profile employers and get expert advice on their future careers.


The trip was the first organised by the University of Lincoln Law Society alongside the University of Lincoln Careers and Employability Service. Over 50 students attended the event in their best formal attire and met some of the legal profession's best and brightest.


Steven Williams, President of the University of Lincoln Law Society, said: “The Nottingham Law Fair trip was a fantastic outing for many of our aspiring lawyers. Some made excellent ground securing work experience and others engaged with firms which they will soon be submitting their applications to.


“Ever daunting employment statistics did not dull the spirits and the fair proved to be excellent in helping students reach informed career decisions. This was an incredibly informative and worthwhile trip for all those pursuing a career in the legal profession.”


Pauline Tait, Careers and Employability Advisor at the university, said: "Students from the University of Lincoln Law School made an extremely positive impact at one of the UK's largest Law Careers Fairs last week. A large group of well-prepared students, who had done their research, grilled representatives of major national and international law firms about the realities of life and work in the legal profession.


"The professional approach of Lincoln students was commented on by several companies. Entry to the legal profession has never been more competitive and it is vital that students are armed with the very latest facts and figures when making decisions about becoming a lawyer.


"The visit and the pre-visit preparation sessions were jointly organised by the University of Lincoln Careers and Employability Service and the University Law Society. Free transport to Nottingham was provided courtesy of the Careers and Employability Team's Lincoln Award Programme, which recognises students' achievements in increasing their employability skills."
