& Skills Development
Information, advice and guidance
Our goal is to support your career development. We recognise that each student is unique and seek to empower you to explore, develop and implement plans that are meaningful for you.
When you join our university community you can access a range of career development activities. This includes careers fairs, a law fair, sector specific events, employer presentations and workshops. Some law firms host evening receptions for students and events are also organised by student societies like the law and bar societies. Events like these enable you to network with graduate recruiters, explore their graduate opportunities and use the information gained to position yourself for future applications..
Graduate recruiters value the employability skills you develop during your time at university. There are many opportunities to get involved and develop your skill set whilst at Warwick. In addition to societies and clubs, opportunities exist to gain experience via volunteering, work experience and undergraduate research programmes. The Law School provides legally related volunteering and projects. Warwick Law in the Community (LinC) is a collaboration between the School of Law and the Central England Law Centre and LinC projects use public law to address systemic disadvantage and abuse of power. Other departmental initiatives include the Justice Systems Workshops, Death Penalty Project, and Lacuna Magazine.
