    • Suit Camp - a mock assessment practise day for intending lawyers

      Suit Camp offers an exciting opportunity for university and postgraduate students to practise their assessment day skills in a safe and supportive environment. After taking part in a variety of typical assessment day activities, you will have the benefit of valuable feedback from our tutors and will be given further hints and tips to increase your chances of success.

      One of our attendees shares his experience of Suit Camp:

      'Last year I attended The Suit Camp at The University of Law. I gained a great deal from the day in the short term, assisting me greatly in Training Contract applications, Assessment Days and ultimately in gaining a Training Contract at Bond Dickinson LLP. Gaining experience such as this is essential in gaining an understanding of what law firms will be looking for at interview. I built upon my team working abilities, communication and presentation skills, and my overall confidence.

      I also gained an insight into what studying the LLM LPC at The University of Law would be like. Meeting representatives at the centre and briefly learning about how the courses are run and assessed was very interesting and informative.'
