'Careers in Law' Insight Day

Whether a student’s ambition is to defend individuals in court, provide hands-on commercial legal advice to blue chip companies or protect a person’s basic human rights, our ‘Careers in Law’ Insight Day will provide all the information necessary to take those first exciting steps.

Designed especially to be delivered in-house at schools, the day is created and delivered by experienced lawyers. It provides Year 9-12 students with a broad overview of the various careers falling under the umbrella of law, before focusing more particularly on how to become a solicitor, barrister or chartered legal executive.

What do others say about our ‘Careers in Law’ Insight Day?

“I want to thank you and your colleagues for organising such a stimulating and informative day. Our son was absolutely buzzing when he came home! I’m a postgraduate lawyer and now researcher and senior lecturer but I think I’ve only managed to bore him this far. Our son is empowered and informed and has a clearer idea of how he wants to proceed.”

Corinne, parent of Insight Day attendee
