  • Hone your criminal advocacy skills in our mock court room, known as the ‘moot room’4.
  • Apply to volunteer in the Employment Law Clinic, Advocacy Clinic or Business Law and Enterprise Clinic which are operated by students under the guidance of qualified legal practitioners, offering legal advice to the public2.
  • Engage with students at other international universities and industry experts as well as further develop your intercultural competencies and digital skills through initiatives such as our Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) projects2.
  • Build your legal networks - by applying to participate in the Grow Mentoring scheme2, a charity with diversity, inclusion and social mobility at its core.
