In addition to the Careers, Student Development and Outreach, City offers bespoke services for aspiring solicitors and barristers and regularly hosts career talks, workshops, and presentations.
Becoming a lawyer - We provide information about the training you need to undertake to become either a solicitor or a barrister. This section gives you an insight into about the world of law and the type of work lawyers undertake on a daily basis.
Legal Careers - There is a range of career opportunities available for those who choose not to qualify but want to work in the legal sector.
Pupillage Advisory Service - Our Pupillage Advisory Service provides bespoke advice to BPTC students on applying for pupillage. Talks and workshops are regularly hosted to help you with your pupillage applications and interview preparation.
Training Contracts Advisory Service - Our Training Contracts Advisory Service provides dedicated advice to help LPC students to find a training contract. Our legal experts are trained to guide you through the process of finding employment both within the legal profession and in the public and commercial sectors of the economy.
Mooting - Mooting is a great way to develop your legal skills while providing you with invaluable public speaking experience. Mooting is essentially a mock trial where two sides argue a point of law in front of an acting judge, who based on the presentation by each side decides who wins. This is an important part of studying law at City, and our students have been successful in both national and international competitions.
Pro Bono - Pro Bono means "for the public good" and provides a fantastic opportunity for you to participate in real, supervised, case work. Pro Bono work helps you to develop a range of transferable skills whilst helping the local community.
