Swansea University is hosting a two-day Law and Criminology Showcase on the 21st and 22nd of April. This virtual event looks to provide you with a taste of life studying law or criminology. The two-day virtual event will introduce you to studying law or criminology at degree level, including engaging live sessions and handy resources.

A flexible timetable means that you can dip in and out of content at your leisure, but we’d encourage you to join the live sessions in real-time to get the full experience. Don’t worry if you can’t though, because they will be recorded. So if you are unable to make it, you can revisit the pages to catch up on any sessions missed.

Law Showcase Sessions

The law tasters focus on areas like mooting and advocacy, legal issues in sport, and an introduction to the Swansea Law Clinic, which offers students opportunities to practice alongside solicitors and advise real-life clients. This will be supplemented by a chance to meet Swansea graduates in a student panel, and a Q&A session to have any questions answered.

Criminology Showcase Sessions

The two days of criminology sessions will include some of the diverse areas of criminology, such as looking at when ethical hacking can be considered ethical and legal, and a session that focuses on cybercrime and its hidden victims. There will also be a dedicated careers session that looks at what graduates can do with a criminology degree from Swansea, and attendees will have also have access to the graduate panel and Q&A sessions, which offer multiple opportunities to ask any key questions.

Law at Swansea University

The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law is home to a thriving law community, which looks to offer students a variety of opportunities to learn key new skills. These include mooting competitions, working on the miscarriage of justice project, which looks to overturn unsafe convictions, or volunteering for the Swansea Law Clinic, which allows students the opportunity to work alongside practising solicitors. Find out more about the opportunities on offer and the achievements of Swansea’s students and graduates by visiting their student success page.
