    25 March 2014

    The University of Law in Bristol is giving aspiring lawyers the chance to win a session of valuable work experience in a top law firm.

    Attendees at the Choose Law event on Tuesday, April 1 can enter a prize draw for one of four half-day sessions shadowing a trainee solicitor in the law firms Burges Salmon, TLT, Bond Dickinson and Irwin Mitchell.

    The event, held at the Temple Circus centre from 5.30pm to 9pm, is aimed at degree students and graduates and will provide an insight into a career in law and advice on taking the first steps in the profession.

    Students can find out more about postgraduate training courses, the Graduate Diploma in Law, which gives non-law graduates an entry route into Law, the Legal Practice Course for aspiring solicitors and the Bar Professional Training Course for prospective barristers.

    Valuable presentations and workshops, delivered by senior representatives of the four sponsoring law firms, will include tips on making successful applications, using life experience to support a legal career, networking and building one’s personal brand, commercial awareness and information about protecting the rights of vulnerable and disabled people.

    Kerry James, head of The University of Law in Bristol, said: “Legal work experience is vital for anyone wishing to embark a career in Law and there is often a great deal of competition to secure the best placements.  This event not only gives aspiring lawyers a chance to win one of four shadowing sessions with a top law firm but also will provide invaluable advice, tips and information from senior law firm representatives. Attendees can also meet University of Law tutors, all of whom are qualified lawyers, and chat to current students.”
