The Law fair isn’t too far away, Norton Rose Fulbright give their top 5 tips on how to ace the law fair:
- Have a plan
Law fairs are often very large and can be overwhelming. Know which firms you want to speak to and find out where the firm’s stand is to ensure that you have time to speak with them.
- Come prepared
Do your research before you go to the law fair so that you can ask meaningful questions that can’t be found on the firm’s website!
- Be Confident
Don’t be afraid to speak to everyone from all levels of the firm. Speak to graduate recruitment, trainees and associates, as this will provide you with a better understanding of the firm.
- Bring a pen and a notebook
Note down any interesting things you’ve learnt about the firm. This will come in handy during the application and interview process. Make sure to take note of all important dates and deadlines.
- Follow up
Ask for business cards so that you can follow up with any interesting conversations you had or questions you may have at a later date.
The UCL Law Fair 2014 is on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th November and is kindly sponsored by Norton Rose Fulbright and The University of Law
