A free evening introduction to starting a career in the legal profession as a mature applicant
If you think you’ve left it too late to break into the legal profession then think again. An increasing number of law firms now actively seek to recruit candidates who are considering law as a second career or who have decided to go to university at a later stage in life. The reason for this is simple - mature applicants are often more commercially aware, having gained real life experience.
So if the idea of becoming a solicitor or barrister appeals to you, then what better way to find out how than by attending Lawyer 2B’s brand new free legal careers evening held in association with the College of Law.
The evening will include two presentations. The first will be an introductory talk covering the steps to qualification and an insight into the work of lawyers and the second will offer top tips on how to write winning applications and how to survive interviews/assessment days. These will be followed by informal networking with leading commercial law firms
over drinks and canapes.
Attendance is strictly by invitation only subject to you meeting the criteria below:
*To qualify as a mature student you must have been aged 21 in the first year of your undergraduate degree (Source: direct.gov.uk)
