In much the same way as you’d prepare for a law fair or firm event, you need to do some advance research on the firms that’ll be in attendance. Look at their own websites, their details on LawCareers.Net, the legal press to get a sense of the types of firm they are, the type of law they focus on, the industries they represent and so on. Have a couple of good questions to ask the firm representatives you meet during networking breaks. Spend more time on those firms whose workshops you are attending and build in at least a bit of time to look at the practice area to be covered.
Finally make sure that you know exactly where you’re going on the day (11 Portland Street in Manchester and County Hall in London) and build in time for travel delays.
We’ll send out further information to successful applicants on how to make the most of the virtual event.
