 Paul Shenton, Director at Beeston Shenton Solicitors said: 


“We are delighted to be working in Partnership with Keele University. This is a very exciting time to be involved with the law and we thank the University for providing a channel for us to connect with local business and support the advancement of law professionals of the future”

With Keele University as the venue, the talks promise to be informative and interesting open to both students and businesses alike.

Steve Hargreaves, Business Engagement Manager at Keele University said,

‘It has been a pleasure to support the setup of ‘Making Law Work’ forum, it will be a great resource for the Law sector and this innovative approach has also created research opportunities for our law undergraduates and graduate researchers’

Other aspects of the partnership between Keele and Beeston Shenton include the commitment to facilitate a regular paid 12-month work placement for third-year Keele law students and paid undergraduate placements working as part time interns at the company. These Keele Talent programmes will enable the lawyers of tomorrow to gain an invaluable insight and hands-on experience in the daily running and activities of a busy local law firm.

The first ‘Making Law Work’ forum is scheduled for 5.30pm 5th February 2019 and has a focus on family law. More talks are planned for later in 2019.
