Law Fair 2016

Manchester Central Convention Centre
Tuesday 15 November 2016 12:30pm - 4:00pm

The fair is open to students or graduates from any institution, from both law and non-law courses.

This fair is an excellent forum for students and graduates to have discussions with firms of solicitors about their opportunities for vacation placements and training contracts, to talk to training providers about their law courses or to find out about careers at the Bar or in other areas of Law.

This year we have 100 exhibitors attending, including firms of solicitors, course providers and representation from professional legal bodies such as The Bar, Solicitors in Local Government, Young Legal Aid Lawyers, The Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group, The Legal Aid Practitioners Group, The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and many more.

More details about the fair, including a list of exhibitors, will be available here nearer the time.

Our Postgraduate Study Fair is the next day on Wednesday 16 November 2016. For full details, exhibitor information and details on how to register visit the Postgraduate Study Fair pages on our website.
