Law fair

On Wednesday 30 November the School of Law held the annual Oxford Brookes Law Fair in the bustling forum of the John Henry Brookes Building.

Over 200 students attended the event to discuss their legal careers and study options with staff from the School of Law and legal professionals from a number of law firms and chambers.

Marc Howe, Principal Lecturer in Law and ­­­organiser of the event commented:

It was great to have so many law firms and barristers' chambers sending their lawyers and graduate recruitment teams to advise our students, and we look forward to seeing them again at next year's law fair."

This important event enables the School of Law to continue its strong relationships with local firms and chambers, which considerably enhance the university’s employability credentials. The solicitors' firms and barristers’ chambers in attendance all agreed that the event provides an excellent opportunity for them to meet potential future trainee solicitors and pupil barristers, and to play an integral part in the professional development of law students at Oxford Brookes University.
