Discover Law – Tuesday, 28 November 2017

The Discover Law Day will give students the opportunity to find out more about studying law at Manchester, as well as providing information on the variety of career choices available to law graduates.

Law is a fascinating degree that leads to a career as a solicitor or a barrister, but there are other professions where knowledge of the law is important, including business management, social and public services, including the police, plus careers in the charitable sector or in international organisations.

Discover Law at The University of Manchester.

The Discover Law Day will provide information about what law students study, the methods of teaching and other opportunities provided by the School of Law, including our Legal Advice Centres where Manchester students give advice to members of the public about their legal problems.

You will also find out about mooting, where students conduct mock legal argument and advocacy in competition, and street law which provides students with the experience of explaining complex legal issues to the public.

Students will gain insight into how a law degree will develop their research skills, communication skills and planning and time management skills and lead to a successful career.

On the Discover Law Day, students will experience talks, workshops and a taster lecture from academics to see what it’s really like to be a law student.
