My name is Lowri Morgan, I am currently in my second year studying Law LLB in Cardiff University. I intend to be a commercial lawyer in the future, and have been told the best lawyers are the best business people; and so I have developed an interest in marketing. I am this years student ambassador for the Cardiff Law Fair.
The Cardiff Law Fair is taking place on 5th November in City Hall. This is a great opportunity to meet and talk face to face to over 40 law firms, and attend employer talks on getting a job.
If you’re definite about the firm you’re applying for, or have no idea what career path you intend to take after your degree , pop in and you may surprise yourself as to what interests you. For more information about the firms attending visit https://www.facebook.com/cardiffunicareers?ref=hl#!/events/598808556827233/
or for specific information on employer talks visit https://www.facebook.com/events/208262899351475/?ref=5.
In order to make the most out of your day, you should ensure that you are fully prepared beforehand. Don’t panic if you’re unsure on how to do this! We have organised two ‘Prepare for the Law Fair’ events for you to ensure that you are confident and ready for the day, which can be found on
We have a range of other talks lined up outside of this event. Kicking off with the BLD foundation talk on the Legal Launch Pad. https://www.facebook.com/events/208262899351475/?ref=5#!/events/345274948943509/
Skills sessions and talks on city law have been organised, for those interested in commercial law from MacFarlanes https://www.facebook.com/events/173147972887400/#!/events/219951014833583/
and CMS Cameron McKenna.
However, if being a solicitor doesn’t take your fancy, don’t worry. Why not attend our ‘Careers at the Bar’ event and see if this is more suited to you. https://www.facebook.com/cardiffunicareers/events#!/events/173147972887400/
Or even a talk on employment tribunals in Wales https://www.facebook.com/cardiffunicareers/events?ref=1#%21/events/380533018743815/
But don’t think you have to do a law degree to have a career within the law. If you’re interested in working in a legal environment then come along to any of the events above, but also find out about your next steps after your degree at the ‘converting to law’ talk https://www.facebook.com/cardiffunicareers/events#!/events/479364098828517/
This is your career! Make the most of the talks offered and enjoy the experience! That’s what they’re there for.
