School of Law hosts first annual Law Fair

On 27 February 2019, Keele Law School held the first annual Law Fair. We had over 450 students registered and 30 exhibitors. It was a busy and vibrant event enjoyed by both the students, visitors and speakers.

Many students came away with offers of work experience and inspirational stories of success from our many alumni who came to represent their firms and Chambers.

We had talks throughout the fair which gave students a valuable insight into topics such as the use of social media, being a paralegal at EY Review Law, Legal tech and lawyers of the future and valuable tips on how to apply for a training contract.

Some comments from exhibitors were as follows;

"Great event, really well organised and the passion and talent on display from the students was inspiring."

“…what a pleasure it was to talk to so many engaged, motivated students. They all asked really thoughtful, insightful questions and had clearly done their research before coming to the fair.”
