Law Fair 2018

Manchester Central
Tuesday 13 November 2018 12:30pm - 4:00pm

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

It 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.

Last year there were over 90 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. We expect a similar turn out in 2018 and will publicise an exhibitor list in due course.

You can see which exhibitors are attending the Law Fair this year in the 'Exhibitors A-Z' section of our website.
