I am working with colleagues here at the University of Edinburgh’s Law School to run 2 events aimed at S5 and S6 pupils attending state schools in Scotland who are considering studying Law or working in the legal sector. Please see below for further information and links which pupils can use to sign up to events.
Friday 12th November 2021 (14:30 – 16:00): So You Want to be a Lawyer – Academic Focus
How do you know you want to study law if you’ve never studied law? What’s life as a law student really like? How do you manage coursework and other interests? Come along to this session to hear from current students at the University of Edinburgh, and start learning some law. Bring your questions to the session and we’ll aim to answer them all for you. We’re all excited to meet you!
Friday 26th November 2021 (14:30 – 16:00): So You Want to be a Lawyer – Professional Focus
You think you want to study law, but what’s it like to work in the law? What do lawyers do? Who do they work for, and why? Sign in to this session to hear from our fabulous panel of lawyers from a variety of areas of practice, and a wide range of backgrounds. They will share with you their journey into law. Bring your questions!
