ULaw in your Classroom

We offer a wide range of talks, workshops and other events designed to help students find out about careers in law, criminology, business and policing for students ranging from year 10 – 13.

During pandemic

We appreciate that during this time it has been challenging to organise and run career and HE sessions. The University of law would like to support you in this. We have a range of sessions developed to deliver virtually in to your students. Contact us now to enquire about Ulaw supporting your students (contact details below).

Our sessions

Our experienced staff and student ambassadors can visit your school or college and deliver a range of interactive workshops to students in Years 12 and 13, Further Education Years 1 and 2, and parents/carers.

All our events and activities align to Gatsby Benchmarks 2, 4 & 7.

Our workshops and talks explore your students’ employability and skills development and are all free of charge. They are usually an hour long and run to class sizes of 20-50 students, however they can be tailored to your requirements.

Here are the events we offer at schools and colleges. To book, please contact one of our Student Recruitment Managers. You will find their contact details at the bottom of this page.

In this session we help the students develop their personal brand. We give advice on how to promote their skills and experience, how to structure personal statements and CVs, and some helpful activities along the way.

Networking is one of the most important skills students need to develop when studying on a professional degree and later, in the work place. We will share our tips and insight into the world of online networking, including advice on setting up a LinkedIn profile.
