Pro Bono and Legal Careers Fair

Manchester Metropolitan University Business School , North Atrium, Business School, Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester Met students studying law can meet and talk to lots of different organisations, including law firms, chambers, legal pro bono (legal volunteering) charities and legal businesses, and find out about different careers, job and volunteer opportunities.

It’s a great opportunity if you are thinking about a career in law; the more knowledge and experience that you can build about the wide range of potential careers the better placed you will be to find something that truly suits you.

This might be as a solicitor or barrister, but the pro bono schemes may show you other possible routes. Even if a career in law is not for you, legal volunteering or work experience will never be time wasted as the skills you could get, such as researching and time management are transferable and will be a real asset to your CV.

Law firms and other legal services companies that attend are scouting for talent and on the lookout for promising future applicants for training contracts, paralegal positions, vacation schemes and work experience opportunities.

Our pro bono partners will be recruiting law students to work on real life legal projects through our Pro Bono Network. They want to talk to you about the realities and commitment, and the rewards of volunteering on their projects.
