Some of the activities we run at The University of Law London Bloomsbury include:
Forum provides students with an opportunity to learn about and discuss
developments in technology generally and how they impact on businesses,
including law firms in particular. The Forum benefits from prestigious guest
Throughout the academic year a range
of external speakers deliver lectures to students with a broad “commercial
awareness” theme which enables students to expand their knowledge of legal
practice. A wide variety of subjects are covered, recent examples include talks
by practitioners about life as an in-house lawyer, personal injury lawyer and
international family lawyer. Another recent talk focussed on the commercial
operations of law firms as a business and advice upon what law firms are
looking for in a trainee.
The Criminal Justice and Human Rights
Forum provides a regular and exciting opportunity for students and staff to
meet and consider issues of social justice. This Forum explores some of the big
issues that often motivate people to become lawyers in the first place.
As well as being a great opportunity to be motivated
by excellent speakers, it offers an incredible insight into the work of these individuals,
who in the process are more than happy to offer advice and guidance for those
wishing to enter into this field of law. It will also enable you to practice your
networking skills which are so vital to achieving your goals. You will also be
able to meet like-minded colleagues who are keen to make a difference in these
vital, yet under resourced areas of law.
Recent speakers have inspired and encouraged us by speaking
passionately about the work of a criminal barrister and giving us a valuable
insight into this role. We have also heard from lawyers who have made it their
life work to bring human rights to the prison population in this country, and
to parts of Africa by means of the African Prison Project.
In addition to our exciting and challenging
series of speakers, the Criminal Justice and Human Rights Forum plans an annual
conference for the benefit of its students.
The BPTC team run a great variety of events throughout the year many of
which are open to all students. Recent examples include:
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, with especial thanks to The London Bar Society. 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.
The Bloomsbury Campus holds an annual photography
competition which allows students to showcase their photography skills. The
competition is open to all students at the Campus and the winning entries are
selected by a judging panel comprising professional photographers. The five
best submissions are displayed around the Store Street building during the
winter semester. Students and staff are then given the opportunity to
potentially purchase their favourite pictures at an open auction, with all
profits from the auction going to our chosen charity.
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.

likely it is that our students will achieve their career goals.
Throughout the year our Employability team hosts
presentations from a wide range of lawyers from
both local and national firms, from in house
lawyers in various industries and barristers at the independent bar.
These focus both on key issues affecting the legal
profession and on specific areas of legal practice. The programme allows students
to gather key information on what is going on in the
legal marketplace and how to be a part of it.
The Employability team organises a popular and
successful mentoring scheme matching successful applicants with a mentor who
works in the legal profession. The
scheme gives students a valuable insight into how to succeed in their career. Mentors
are drawn from a wide variety of practice areas and we endeavour to match
successful applicants with a mentor with similar career interests and experiences.
The University of Law
has an award winning pro bono service. Students studying at
our London campuses can access the full range of
supervised pro bono opportunities offered across both London sites. These take place either on campus, with external organisations or
supervised remotely to include our part time and interactive students. 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.
of Law students meet with Court staff to prepare roles for a mock trial before
a District Judge in the London Central County Court. This involves planning
their time, reviewing a case, rehearsing and gaining knowledge of Court
procedure. A valuable opportunity to see
how a Judge decides a case.
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.

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 usually interview clients in pairs or threes, to
obtain details of the case and then work together to produce a letter of
advice. Students gain interviewing, legal research, case analysis, drafting and
file management skills through this hands-on experience.
Our telephone advice clinic for family and employment matters involves students
obtaining details from the client prior to the supervising solicitor giving
advice. The students shadow the
solicitor advising the client and then write up an attendance note.
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 including 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 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.
We also run a
Streetlaw library that involves students preparing legal information in leaflet
form to give to current clients of the Legal Advice Centre, the Employment
Tribunal Litigant in Person’s scheme which
helps them progress their case themselves where
necessary. Participation in this scheme requires research, creativity and
drafting skills to prepare a document which a layperson can understand but is
accurate for legal content and procedure.
Bloomsbury’s wide range of student-run sports and social events reflect the diversity of the centre. At the beginning of your course, you can elect to run a society, club or event of your choice – or simply join one.
Current activities range from the intellectually stimulating, fun, or sheer physical and include:
