Society to host fourth Legal Profession event for Year 12 students

Liverpool Law Society will hold its fourth Pathways to the Legal Profession event on 7 February 2018 at Liverpool Town Hall. 

In keeping with the Society's desire to be inclusive and encourage entry to the profession from all backgrounds, students from all schools and colleges across Merseyside have been invited to attend.  To date 130 pupils and teachers from 17 schools have registered to attend and we are delighted the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, will open the event.

A panel of speakers from key institutions across the city will outline the various entry routes into the Law – from the traditional university route to the modern apprenticeship route, and other options in between.  Directors of Liverpool Law Society will also be present during the refreshment break to be on hand to answer any of the young adults' queries.

The thanks of the Society are given to Slater and Gordon who are not only sponsoring the event but also providing an apprentice speaker to talk about their day-to-day working life.   Thanks also go to the other speakers and organisations supporting the event: BPP, CILEx, Hill Dickinson, Liverpool John Moores University, University of Law, and the University of Liverpool.

Much positive feedback was received from the students and teachers who attended the 2017 event:

“Enlightening experience which has only made my desire for a career in law even bigger and has inspired me to work even harder to reach my goal”, Sacred Heart Catholic College student

“This has been a really useful opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of different routes through to different legal professions” teacher.

“The event reassured me on the details of conversion courses.  Overall, a very beneficial experience.  The event was comprehensive, covered a broad spectrum of topics, and was run efficiently” Cardinal Heenan Sixth Form student

“It was extremely informative and the exhibition stands were very helpful” Upton Hall School student

“It introduced me to the idea of being open-minded about my choice in law, instead of being solely focused on one path” West Derby School student
