Below are details of talks hosted by KLS, any of the KLS student law societies, the University’s central Careers & Employability Service and the wider university which may be of interest to you. Please note that the talks below are only a small proportion of the many talks that take place on campus every week. They are the ones that I believe are most relevant to law students but there will always be others that may be of interest to some of you so you should check out the university events calendar too.

All of the talks listed will entitle you to between 5-10 EPs unless otherwise indicated.

EMPLOYABILITY EVENTS 

C19 message.   For the Autumn term, at least, all employability events will be virtual.   The advantage of this is that you will find most law firms and other recruiters will be running on-line workshops and insight events.   There will be so many opportunities you will need to make checks for yourself as it will not be possible to bring them all to your attention.

Where should you check:

  1. If there is a particular recruiter/education provider you are interested in go straight to their website and look at their ‘events’
  2. For a good listing check out the calendar of events on LawCareers.Net here – https://www.lawcareers.net/Explore/Diary
  3. Use the listing provided by the Careers & Employability Service on Target Connect

 Please note, this list is being added to regularly. Don’t miss out – check each week
