    • Some of the activities we run at The University of Law London Bloomsbury include:

      The Forum

      The Forum is a combination of two distinct activities at London Bloomsbury: the Law and Justice Forum and the Commercial Awareness Forum (CAF). These activities have been running successfully for many years and attract a range of prestigious speakers.

      Commercial Awareness Forum (CAF)

      CAF exists to increase students’ awareness of business, commerce and finance. It is run by students for students, with lecturers acting as facilitators who provide administrative support and guidance on how to invite speakers. CAF invites speakers, not all of whom are lawyers, to speak on topics of general interest. As it is an extra-curricular activity, it aims to be fun and to avoid formal 'law lecture' type presentations.

      Recent CAF topics and speakers include:

      • Tim Carter, Legal Counsel at Google UK - life as an in-house lawyer at Google and what the key legal issues are there
      • Dennis Turner, Chief Economist at HSBC - 'How long, how deep?' presentation and discussion about the economic downturn ‘The Effect of the Credit Crunch on Litigators'.
      Law and Justice Forum

      The Law & Justice Forum provides an opportunity for students and staff to meet and consider issues of social justice. The Forum complements the specific subjects and areas that students study on both the GDL and LPC and provides an opportunity to consider some of the big issues that often motivate people to become lawyers in the first place. Here are just some of the topics covered recently:

      • ‘Gender and the Law’ - Baroness Hale of Richmond - the first and only female Law 'Lord' and HHJ Judge Case, a family law judge and treasurer of the UK Women Judges' Association
      • Cherie Booth - County/Crown Court Recorder, practising QC and as of 2009, Vice-Chair of the International Bar Association's Officers Discrimination Law Committee
      • ‘Honour Killings’ - Lynne Townley, Senior Policy Advisor to the CPS.
      The Business Game
      • How well can you work in a multidisciplinary team?
      • Can you really communicate your ideas?

      The Business Game is designed to help you gain commercial awareness and develop skills in business strategy and teamwork.

      As a Director of a fictional PLC you will have the opportunity to get a feel for the pressures and challenges that Directorship brings. You will need to analyse the market place, prepare a strategy and fight off the competition. At the same time you will also need to shape the culture of your company and communicate your views to your employees.

      Working as part of a team (where each person will have different skills), you will need to establish the strengths and weaknesses of your fellow Directors so work can be allocated efficiently. Time will always be an issue so careful time management and an equitable decision-making process will be critical.

      Investment Game – ‘the FooTSE League’

      Become a virtual share trader and pit your wits against other students and the investment professionals by taking part in The University of Law Share Challenge. This is a ‘share race’ investment game designed to introduce you to the financial world by raising your awareness of, and interest in, the factors that influence share values and investment decisions.

      Working in small teams, you will become a virtual share trader and pit your wits against other students. You will be given a fictional £100,000 to invest in a portfolio of shares.

      You will then trade your shares over a period of time with a view to maximising the value of your portfolio – highest value wins. To win this competition you will need to work as a team, apply lateral and strategic thinking and have nerves of steel.

      Mooting Competitions

      Our GDL students have the opportunity to gain valuable training in the skills of oral presentation, advocacy and teamwork through participation in our mooting competitions. Run on a knock-out basis, the preliminary rounds are judged by fellow students on the BPTC and LPC and the final rounds by practitioners.

    • Careers

      The Careers and Employability team at The University of Law London Bloomsbury includes a team of experienced legal careers consultants, who are on hand to give you advice and guidance on your first steps to your career in law. Visit resources and facilities to find out more.

      Pro bono

      Pro bono has been a priority for The University of Law since 2001. Students studying at our London centres can access the full range of pro bono opportunities offered across both sites. Below are details of some of the schemes we have run in London. There are changes year-to-year, but we will always provide a range of options designed to enhance the employability of our students.
      The RCJ Personal Support Unit
      University of Law students at the Royal Courts of Justice Personal Support Unit will be trained in a McKenzie friend capacity to assist litigants in person, witnesses’ family members and other members of the public with understanding their court documents, where to go, what fees to pay and accompanying them to court when they need extra support. Students really enjoy this experience as they are in the heart of the legal system; seeing it in action puts their learning in context.
      Legal advice clinic (LAC)
      This is a free legal advice service run by student advisors inside the University for members of the public under the supervision of solicitors experienced in social welfare law. Areas covered include housing, leasehold disputes, employment, family and welfare benefits.

      Working in the legal advice clinic gives students an insight into the workings of a legal practice, a chance to work as a member of the team, and to give much needed help to members of the community.

      University of Law students interview clients in pairs or threes, to obtain details of the case and then work together to produce a letter of advice. Students will gain interviewing, legal research, case analysis, drafting and file management skills through this hands-on experience.

      Our telephone advice for family and employment involves obtaining details from the client before the session for the solicitor to then give the advice. The student writes this up as an attendance note.
      National Centre for Domestic Violence
      NCDV is a national organisation providing assistance to people suffering domestic violence. NCDV volunteers work in the legal advice clinic to assist victims of domestic violence to obtain emergency injunctions.

      University of Law students gain an understanding of relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, and basic family law. Students interview clients over the phone under difficult circumstances, and gain experience of preparing witness statements and court documents. 
      This is an innovative legal literacy scheme where students work directly with schools, community groups and prisons.

      University of Law students devise and deliver workshops on different areas of law.

      Streetlaw students have recently worked in the areas of social enterprises, welfare rights, rights on arrest, education law, employment law, company law and fundraising. Streetlaw also runs a mock trial scheme called 'Your day in court', where students work with school pupils on a theft, a Magistrates’ and Crown Court case.

      Students will gain experience in legal research, preparation of presentations, time management, client care, file management and communication skills. They will also discover how the law impacts on everyday life on an inner city estate.

      We also run a Streetlaw library that involves students preparing legal information in a leaflet form to give to current clients of the Legal Advice Centre to help them progress their case themselves where necessary. Participation in this scheme will involve lengthy research, creativity and drafting skills to prepare a document which a layperson can understand but is accurate for legal content and procedure.
      Intellectual property letter writing clinic
      The University works with Own-it, an organisation supporting start-up businesses in the creative industries.

      You will draft materials for Own-it’s website including letters of advice to individual queries. You will have the chance to use your drafting, analysis and teamwork skills.
