Law Careers Events
QM and Enterprise Centre delivers "Careers in Law" - a series of employer led events and workshops, as well as the QM Law Fair. The events provide insights into legal (and other) professions, and the skills you need to get through recruitment processes, for example how to write a good application, or how to succeed at interviews.
Below you will find the programme of events for the 2013/14 academic year. We recommend you make the most of these on-campus events - when you come to complete applications and attend interviews they will be very useful!
Registration in advance is essential for all of these events - please visit: http://www.careers.qmul.ac.uk/events/booking/index.html
