AGCAS National Conference

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Following their regional success, the University of Lincoln Law Society are thrilled to have presented at the national Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services Annual Conference for HE Careers Professionals at the University of Warwick. 

The society’s Vice President and School Representative for Law, Thomas Mitchell, and Society President, Jack Maddock, have once again collaborated with Pauline Tait, Careers and Employability Advisor, for the workshop at the University of Warwick on 8th September.

The session, titled ‘Student As Producer’ will share experiences throughout the University’s mission to ‘engage students to become active producers of new knowledge, rather than passive consumers of existing knowledge’, including the innovative ‘Kick Start’ group work pilot.

In June, Thomas Mitchell and Louis Harman, Society Treasurer, presented a similar presentation at a regional conference in Leicester, highlighting the need to enable students to be proactive in managing their own careers from the moment they arrive at the University.


"After our successes at the Regional AGCAS Conference, we attended the National Conference which saw the Law Society, School Representative and the Careers and Employability service jointly present a session on collaborative working. We highlighted the importance of working with students as full and equal partners. This ideology is known as Student as Producer and is the underpinning ideology at the University of Lincoln." - Jack Maddock, University of Lincoln Law Society.


“Following our success at the Regional AGCAS Conference at the University of Leicester, we were asked to present our workshop at their National AGCAS Conference at the University of Warwick. This was a great opportunity for myself, Jack Maddock and Pauline Tait, to get across our message on collaboration and the underpinning ideology of ‘Student As Producer’, that we have been so successful in implementing within the Law School, Law Society and Careers & Employability Services.” – Thomas Mitchell, School Representative for Law.


We would like to thank Professor Duncan French and the University of Lincoln Law School for paying for transport.
