'Get into Law' Conference

Inspiring our law students 

On Tuesday 21st January, 25 Year 12 and Year 13 students attended the 'Get into Law Conference' hosted by Young Professionals at Antenna in Nottingham City Centre.This career event  included talks from head of recruitment at Browne Jacobson and by an IP solicitor from Potter Clarkson. This was a massive opportunity for students to gain an insight into the day to day life of a solicitor and the inner workings of the best firms in Nottingham. In particular the various routes into law students found most beneficial from the traditional university route to the less known apprenticeship route.

Students thoroughly enjoyed and engaged with the ‘mock’ trial and were given an insight to sentencing procedures and tariffs. We will be looking forward to this event next year!!!
