Law Virtual Careers Fair

Law Virtual Careers Fair 

Wednesday 10 November 2021 
11:30 to 15:30 

Bookings are now open for 2021.

The Law Virtual Careers Fair will be running for a second time and replaces the traditional Exeter Law Careers Fair.  

The fair is attended by international, national and local law firms, barristers' chambers and those offering further study and training opportunities, plus a small number of recruitment agencies and jobs portals.   

The event is promoted to all University of Exeter students, including those studying at our Penryn campus. As we encourage early consideration of career pathways, you can expect students in their first year through to their final year, from law and non-law subjects to register. Our graduates are also welcome. Over 600 students engaged in our first Law Virtual Careers Fair held in 2020,  providing an excellent way to boost your profile and connect with high calibre undergraduates, postgraduate and graduates who are seeking a career within the legal profession.  

Please note this fair is not suitable for those offering volunteering opportunities.
