The best way to find out about The University of Law is to experience it by attending one of our open days or events!
Our open days are for prospective students interested in studying one of our undergraduate or postgraduate courses. With eight centres in seven cities we probably hold more open days than any other law school and of course there’s a greater likelihood of one being almost round the corner. 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:
Explore Law gives A Level and GCSE students the opportunity to find out what it really takes to study law at university and to work as a lawyer. Discover law through interactive law taster workshops and collect valuable information and advice on finding your route into a career in law.
Our exciting insight days offer fantastic opportunities for law or non-law university and postgraduate students wanting to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister.
The Solicitor Insight Day offers fantastic opportunities for students wanting to pursue a career as a solicitor. Both law and non-law students are welcome at this exciting event. In addition to finding out about the courses on offer at The University of Law you can improve your employability through workshops on effective applications and good interview technique. There will also be the opportunity to network with solicitors from a number of legal organisations attending the event and to use the question-and-answer panel to find out what life as a solicitor is really like.
If you are interested in pursuing a career at the Bar then our Barrister Insight Day is not to be missed. Take advantage of the opportunity to network with practising barristers from a number of chambers and gain a valuable insight into the profession during the question-and-answer panel. There will also be an employability workshop advising on how you can maximise your chances of success when applying to the Bar. You can also take part in our cross-examination skills session which demonstrates how the practical elements of the Bar course are taught at The University of Law. The Barrister Insight Day is open to both law and non-law students.
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.'Todd Rayner, aspiring solicitor
