Law Events

Whether you are a prospective student, a parent, a careers advisor or a legal professional, our extensive events programme has something for you.

If you want to find out more about our courses and our School, we hold a variety of open days and evenings throughout the year. We also attend a variety of law fairs, Institution events and Careers events.

Online chat sessions

The City Law School introduces its new series of online chat sessions this December with programme directors delivering online course introductions demonstrating the benefits of studying at City, University of London.

After the presentation, prospective students will be able to ask questions and find out more information regarding the course, London and The City Law School. This is an opportunity for current offer holders and applicants to ask any questions they have before embarking on the respective courses.

Find out more about these chat sessions.

City Law School open days/evenings

The City Law School offers a number of open days and evenings each year. Some of these are for students who are considering applying to a programme, while others are for those who have already applied or even those who have already been made an offer.

Undergraduate courses

City, University of London holds open days throughout the year for students interested in taking an undergraduate degree at the Institution.

Later on in the year, we hold open days for students who have already applied for our LLB (Hons) and been made an offer. We usually offer two dates, one in March and one in April.

We also participate in the London Taster Day programme, giving prospective undergraduates the opportunity to "try out" a number of subjects before making their application. The Law Taster Day usually runs in March each year. For full details see www.london.ac.uk/tasters.

Postgraduate courses

An open evening for students interested in applying for our postgraduate courses, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), Graduate Entry LLB or LLMs, usually takes place in late November each year and allows prospective students to come in and see us in person before making their application.

In addition, we also offer events for those that have already applied and that have been made an offer. This event usually takes place in mid March.

Postgraduate students wanting to see the School at other times are encouraged to contact us directly on +44 (0)20 7040 3309 or law@city.ac.uk to book a personal appointment.

Professional courses

Like the other postgraduate courses, we offer events for both prospective Bar Professional Course (BPTC) and Legal Practice Course (LPC) students, as well as applicants / offerees. Our combined event for prospective students is usually held in early November each year, while our LPC and BVC specific applicant / offeree events are usually held in February each year.

Law fairs and institution visits

Like most legal education providers, we attend a large number of the law fairs each year which are held at other universities and venues around the UK. These events are a great way to get more information on the courses we offer and the services we provide... there are also often a number of pretty good "freebies" to be had at these events too!

Institution-wide events, visits and open days

The UK Recruitment Office regularly hosts and attends undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment events on behalf of City and its schools. In addition, City regularly host campus tours for prospective students. These are usually held on a Wednesday afternoon and can be booked online in advance.

Our International Office also attend many events each year, meeting with international students and their families, answering questions and providing information on everything form our courses to studying in London / UK.

Careers events

Within the City Law School and the institution, we have very pro-active careers professionals. They provide group and one-to-one advice and host a number of informational and practitioner events each year. Some are for current students, some for prospective students and some are for the general public, but all provide essential, high-quality and informative information.

Public events, forums and conferences

Throughout the year, The City Law School and City, University of London hold a wide range of events, some are for the provision of general or specialist information, some provide updates on key areas of research or business and some just offer an evening of networking in good company. Our Events listing will keep you fully informed of all events taking place within the School, and City's What's On pages will allow you to see event news from other subject areas within City.
