Diversity theme leads to successful London Law Fair

The London Law Fair, held on 27th November at the Business Design Centre in Islington, attracted over 1,000 students to hear the seminars and meet the exhibitors. The fair was set up by CILEx Law School in partnership with CILEx, Lawcareers.net, Lawyer2B and a consortium of five London universities. The theme ‘Promoting Access to a Diverse Legal Profession’ was carried through in seminars by Clifford Chance, Co-operative Legal Services and CILEx Law School. The seminars included:

Alternative business structure: the view from Co-operative Legal Services, a new type of employer.

Opportunities in the magic circle: the view from Clifford Chance

Opportunities as a Chartered Legal Executive: your route to becoming a lawyer.

The list of exhibitors is given below.

Noel Inge, Managing Director of CILEx Law School, said: “It was great to see students and graduates from many different ethnic backgrounds having the chance to speak to exhibitors from some of the biggest names in the legal world.”

Noel continued: “Those law undergraduates who had not heard about the CILEx route to becoming a qualified lawyer were very interested in the presentation on that subject, and the opportunity to top up their degrees with courses from CILEx Law School to fulfil the vocational stage of CILEx training.”
