Kaplan Law School, providers of the LPC and BPTC run a series of workshops and events, ranging from talks on Family Law to a presentation on a day in the life at Bird and Bird.
In their own words, they say:
From a careers perspective, we cultivate valuable relationships with law firms and chambers. Many of these firms and chambers visit the school to deliver excellent workshops to our students, enhancing their understanding of key concepts and developing skills that are sought out in the training contract and pupillage recruitment processes. Most importantly it gives our students the opportunity to make a positive first impression on graduate recruiters. Therefore, we run a full and active careers programme which is open to prospective students as well as existing students. This is an excellent way for you to learn more about us as well as the profession.
Make sure that when you attend you dress smartly, have a notebook and pen handy and are ready to ask intellegent questions. Put your best self forward every time you meet potential employers; you never know who will be there that you might impress!
