Law Enrichment Week
13 October 2017 - Nick Boothroyd
Law Enrichment Week offers events to develop your academic skills and help prepare you for your future as we welcome a variety of employers from legal and non-legal professions to help you gain insight into the world of work.
You’ll gain first-hand advice into building a successful career, growing your network and the types of questions to ask, as well as developing the skills you’ll need to succeed in your first graduate role and beyond.
Academic skills sessions will enhance your skills and help you reach your potential in your assessments. The sessions will be practical and offer tips on how to make the most of the resources available to you.
The week has been designed for Level 6 and Level 7 Law students, however, all students are welcome to attend the Mini-Careers Fair on Wednesday 1 November.
