The Law School aims to provide all students with excellent employment opportunities and strives to help its students enter the employment market with excellent employability skills. Employability is addressed in the course in a number of different ways.
All law students are assigned an Academic Personal Tutor (APT) who will monitor the academic performance of their personal tutees as well as provide guidance on a number of topics ranging from academic to personal matters. Through the dedicated personal tutorial system that operates, all students will undertake a 10 credit module at each stage of their course addressing employability alongside the development of personal and legal skills. These modules will be delivered jointly by the APT and the Employment Personal Tutor (EPT) working within the Law School.
Legal Futures offers dedicated employment support to all students and recent graduates within the Law School via a Placement Advisor and an Employment Personal Tutor. The Placement Advisor is responsible for organising work experience opportunities and guiding our students into these by delivering talks within lectures, working with students on an individual basis, hosting presentations and events, as well as providing bespoke documentation and information packs.
The Employment Personal Tutor supports our students throughout their student journey from the moment they start their course. They introduce career options, help students to understand the skills sought by employers and provide guidance that will help them when making work placement and graduate job applications. Our Employment Personal Tutor has previously worked within industry as a recruiter and therefore has first hand knowledge of the labour market, the skills employers look for and the processes used by employers to select candidates.
Throughout the year we welcome employers onto campus and run a number of events and activities. These include:
