Careers in Law: Global Options, Local Opportunities 2015

‘Careers in Law: Global Options, Local Opportunities’ is a Legal Workshop for international and local secondary school (aged 16 and over), college and university level students from multi-cultural backgrounds.  Following on the success of the BFUWI workshop at Inner Temple in June, Coventry University has approached BFUWI and asked them to replicate the event for students from the Midlands.

  • Highlight the skills and qualifications needed for a legal career, what life is like in private practice, working in house and in the public sector and what the future holds for the next generation of lawyers.
