Careers in Law Week 2016 takes place on the week commencing Monday 26th September 2016. This is an initiative by the School of Law in conjunction with the Career Development Centre. Students are strongly encouraged to to attend as many of these events as possible and while they are open to all law students, it is especially important that those nearing the completion of their degrees attend in large numbers. The Careers in Law Week is an invaluable opportunity for students to begin to understand the environment in which they will compete with graduates from this and other institutions.
