Most law firms are interested in what type of lawyer you will make rather than what you studied at Uni – SO whatever your degree there’s a career in Law for you if you want it.
Tuesday’s Law Fair sees over 40 exhibitors come together to showcase their student and graduate opportunities and to recruit Cardiff students and graduates – they want to meet you and they want to recruit the best from Cardiff – is that you?
This weekend why not watch your way to a more informed start to the Fair! Fairs are a fantastic opportunity to meet recruiters and to sell yourself. the Law Fair only takes place once a year, so you need to be there to maximise your chances of a placement, training scheme, postgraduate course and more.
The thought of Careers Fairs and when you first arrive at the hall can be a little daunting, but rest assured that they are friendly and welcoming and the exhibitors are there because they want to meet and to help you. They want to inspire you to work with them and they want to meet interesting and interested students who they can see fitting in well in their organisation and adding value to their business.
