At Bracton Law Society, we provide our members with the necessary tools to kick-start their careers. As one of the most active law societies in the United Kingdom, each year we offer an unrivalled careers programme, accommodating for all our members, including law and non-law students, undergraduates, postgraduates and students undertaking the GDL or LPC on campus.
Largely a commercial law society, we currently work with over thirty-five leading national and international law and professional services firms, and we are rapidly expanding on all fronts. We offer an assortment of careers events throughout the year, ranging from exclusive open days and skills sessions to presentations and networking opportunities.
Labelled as the ‘Networking Event of the Year’ and this year nominated for ‘Best Careers Event’ by LawCareers.Net, our annual Careers Dinner is an exclusive and unparalleled opportunity to network with a range of prestigious law firms, gain valuable contacts and find out important information ahead of the competitive application process for vacation schemes and training contracts.
For all members interested in a career in commercial law, the Commercial Awareness Forum is an invaluable opportunity to listen to a series of expert panel discussions of highly topical commercial issues. Attendance will allow members to develop their commercial awareness - a necessary, but difficult to master, skill for applications. Building upon strong foundations, this year we seek to expand the Forum to maximise the employability of our members.
However, we cater for all students who wish to pursue a career in law and recognise that the legal profession has seen a steady rise in diverse job opportunities. In addition to the wide range of commercial and bar events, we are therefore equally committed to catering for members that wish to pursue an alternative legal career.
Overall, Bracton Law Society aims to inspire and support members aiming for a career in the legal profession by increasing awareness of careers opportunities on a regional, national and international level and providing a strong community for members to meet like-minded individuals through our busy calendar of events.
