The CityLawLIVE careers conference is for talented students (law and non-law) who want to learn more about how to build a fulfilling career as a solicitor in a City firm. It is timed to maximise the benefit to students intending to apply for 2017 vacation schemes.

The event includes:

  • advice on crafting excellent applications, shining at interview and forging a successful career;
  • exposure to, and insight from, some of the City's most experienced recruiters and lawyers; and
  • networking opportunities with those same recruiters and lawyers, and fellow delegates, including during interactive firm-led workshops, which drill down into what it's like to work in a particular practice area within a City firm.
     

Why should you attend?

If you want to learn more about life as a City lawyer, from the people who are already living it and those who hire them, and you have the experience and grades to back up your enthusiasm, then CityLawLIVE is the perfect event for you.

Who will be there?

Graduate recruiters, trainees, associates and partners from some of the City's most prestigious firms. You will have a chance to hear their opinions and advice, speak to them directly at the numerous networking opportunities and impress them personally during the workshops.

How do you apply?

The application form is available here (open from June 2016). Make sure that you give your application the due care and attention required; we are looking for many of the same things that law firms are, so consider this good practice!

Think you've got what it takes? We look forward to receiving your application and wish you luck in your bid to be one of the hand-picked delegates at this unique careers event.

Is a fulfilling career at a national firm more your style? CityLawLIVE’s sister event, NationalLawLIVE, is for you.
