Key Takeaways from the Annual Law Fair Hosted by the City Law School, University of London
Every year, the City Law School hosts a traditional Law Fair that helps students connect with experts and employers from the UK law community. This year, the annual event took place on 10th October. Both exhibitors and students (29 and 400 of them, respectively) described it as an enormous success.
As part of the University of London, the City Law School has been providing high-quality law education since the 19th century. Though there has never been a shortage of employment opportunities for its students, the annual Law Fair is intended to encourage CLS students to explore their options early on.
That is exactly what breakout sessions are for. Designed as an educational platform for students to learn more about employable law skills, these sessions have been an important part of the Law Fair for years. This time, the City Law students were invited to attend not one, but three breakout sessions.
Apart from academics and employers from the legal profession, this year’s Law Fair welcomed notable figures from other sectors as well, providing an even broader range of opportunities. The entire event was organized in partnership with LPC Law and Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner as the Platinum Sponsor.
The City Law School’s Director of LLM programs, Katherine Reece Thomas, who is also Associate Professor at this school, was inspired to see a great number of her LLM students show up. Head of Academic Programs and Professor Jason Chuah was equally satisfied with this year’s Law Fair turnout.
