    We are also proud of the numerous specialist events that we host to help you decide on whether law is the right career for you along with tips on how to prepare and succeed in law. All our events provide a valuable insight and are perfect preparation for a career in law

    • Open days for undergraduate and postgraduate study

      Our open days give you an opportunity to gather a wealth of information about our courses, check out our facilities and soak up the atmosphere at our different centres. More than just a chat and a guided tour, we aim to make your day as interesting and interactive as possible, with a range of presentations and activities:

      • get the lowdown on our courses and flexible study options
      • talk to our tutors, students and careers advisors
      • learn how to get involved in our award-winning pro bono programme
      • find out more about student life at The University of Law

       if you are interested in these courses then come along and find out more.

    • Our Explore Law and Business taster event gives you the chance to find out if law and business are for you – both at university and beyond.

      Our programme includes taster workshops which aim to give you an insight into several different areas of law and business and how they work together in study and the professional world.

      Each event also includes a next steps talk which looks at career options and what you can be doing now to maximise your chances of success.

      At some centres the programme will focus solely on law, and at some others it will be a combined programme investigating how law and business work alongside each other.

      Explore Law and Business is suitable for Year 12 and Year 11 students. If you are a student, you can book yourself a place. If you are a teacher and would like to book in a group, please contact undergrad@law.ac.uk
