Interested in a Career at the Bar?
We hold various events for students who are interested in a career at the Bar.
Barrister Insight Evening
A great opportunity to meet members of the Bar; this panel event allows you to ask questions to students and practitioners at various stages of their career, from students on the BPTC, Pupil Barristers and all the way up to those who have been practising at the Bar for over 10 year. This is followed by a drinks reception where you will get to network and chat with the practitioners in an informal setting.
We arrange visits to various courts in the region, including the Magistrates’ Courts and the Crown Court. You will also be able to arrange your own visits to other courts that reflect your own areas of interest.
Mooting is the oral presentation of a legal issue or problem. Students are given a legal issue and must present their side of the case to a panel of judges using relevant legal arguments.
We hold in-house mooting competitions for intending barristers on our GDL and for students on our BPTC. This provides students with an essential opportunity to put their advocacy skills into practice. The finals of these competitions are judged by practising barristers and judges.
Frequently our students also go on to put their skills to use in national, and international, mooting competitions.
The Careers and Employability team at The University of Law Nottingham will include a team of experienced legal careers consultants who will be on hand to give you advice and guidance on your first steps to your career in law. From 1-2-1 sessions to mock interviews and assessment centres the team will be available to guide you through your chosen career path.
The University of Law has an award-winning pro bono service. The Pro Bono Programme gives you a unique opportunity to put the legal skills you are learning into practice and to make a real difference to the lives of those in your community with unmet legal needs.
Throughout the opportunities you engage in, you will also be developing essential legal skills that employers will be looking for; it is acknowledged that high quality, relevant work experience is now CV imperative.
You do not need prior knowledge of a particular area of law before participating in many of the pro bono schemes. We provide you with support and training.
It’s not all work. We understand that extra-curricular activities provide a welcome break from studying and at The University of Law Nottingham we support a wide range of student sport and social events.
