The legal world is very competitive, therefore legal expertise and general knowledge of the firm you would like to apply to may not be sufficient to qualify for a vacation scheme or training contract.
Working in the public sector or in a city law firm will require a demonstration of Commercial awareness.
Commercial awareness is understanding how events domestically or globally can impact the legal sector or trade for different companies.
Commercial awareness trains your mind to keep up to date with current issues in the legal and business world.
Every Wednesday 7pm via MS TEAMS.
The Weekly orator will be determined by Law Society committees.
All students are welcome to email topics or events that they believe are of significance and to be discussed at the session.
Anyone can apply to be weekly orator by emailing society in advance.
