Law Related Events in Cambridge

The Careers Service hosts two major law related events in Cambridge each academic year:

We also run workshops, employer led skill sessions and presentations relating to aspects of law: e.g., interview skills, assessment centres, case studies, making the most of internships. Consult our online diary for details and to sign-up for any sessions which interest you. Some firms arrange presentations through the University or College Law Societies (who generally welcome both law and non-law students).

Training Contracts, Pupillages and Other Vacancies

In general we don't advertise training contracts or law vacation work via Vacancies & Opportunities (they are well documented in the free legal-careers books which you can pick up at the Careers Service, essential reading for this sector). However we do undertake an annual 'trawl' of numerous law firms (in conjunction with Oxford University), asking for their training contract application deadlines and details of any open days / vacation opportunities. You can consult our most recent trawl findings via the Becoming a Solicitor pages. We do advertise other posts with law firms (e.g. paralegals) and trainee patent attorney posts.
