LAWYER 2B Not too Late for Law - Career Evening
Following the hugely successful events in 2011 and 2012 Lawyer 2B is again running its free to attend 'Not too Late for Law' careers evening in London on Thursday 28th November 2013. The event is specifically designed to guide and engage with mature students and career changes who wish to pursue a career in Law.
If you think you've left it too late to break into the legal profession then think again. An increasing number of law firms and barristers chambers now actively seek to recruit candidates who are considering law as a second career or who have decided to go to university at a later stage in life. The reason for this is simple - mature applicants are often more commercially aware, having gained real life experience.
So if the idea of becoming a solicitor or barrister appeals to you, then what better way to find out how than by attending Lawyer 2B's free legal careers evening held in association with The University of Law.
This unique careers evening will comprise of a set series of informative seminar sessions, interactive workshops and informal networking. Our opening sessions will focus on legal education and making successful applications providing hints and tips on the route into law and how to make sense of applying for training contracts. Our workshops sessions will have an inspirational and interactive focus they'll be presented by mature associates / trainees / barristers. The informal mini law fair will give attendees a real opportunity to network and engage with the graduate recruitment teams, trainees, barristers and education providers over drinks & snacks.
