Kent Law Fair offers excellent networking opportunity

Kent’s annual Law Fair on Wednesday 31 October offers an excellent opportunity for law students and non-law students to network with leading local, national and international law firms.

 This year’s Fair, organised by members of Kent Student Law Society (KSLS), will be held from 1pm – 4pm in Eliot Hall on Kent’s Canterbury campus.

 Law firms attending include Magic Circle firm Clifford Chance together with:

  • Brachers LLP 
  • Cripps LLP
  • Dentons 
  • DGB Solicitors
  •  Furley Page Solicitors
  •  Hatten Wyatt
  • Herbert Smith Freehills 
  • Martin Tolhurst Solicitors
  •  Thomson Snell & Passmore
  •  Trowers and Hamlins

 The Fair is open to all Kent students with an interest in pursuing a legal career. Anyone thinking of attending is encouraged to attend a preparatory talk in the preceding week on Tuesday 23 October. Philippa Ward, a Corporate Solicitor at Pinsent Masons, will be sharing advice on how to maximise the opportunity to network and explore career options. Confirmation of the time and location of the talk will be posted on KSLS’s Facebook page later next month.

 Law Fair organiser Nikoletta Komiati said: ‘As well as being a great networking opportunity, our 2018 Law Fair is the ideal way to gain an insight into vacation schemes and training contracts. It’s an event not to be missed.’

 KSLS is one of six student law societies at Kent Law School. Its primary aim is to support students exploring the option of a career in law as a solicitor. The Society holds talks, CV and interview workshops, and seminars with professionals from different careers and backgrounds throughout the term. It also offers a broad range of social events, including the Annual Law Dinner in February where students can wine and dine with legal professionals.
