Law fairs - meet lawyers and learn about their firms Law fairs offer you an initial look at law firms. They are your chance to meet real lawyers (including trainees, associates and partners) and graduate recruiters, to quiz them about their firms and get a sense of what they are like, as well as make a good impression. They're also useful for non-law students who are considering a career in law and need to learn more about how to make that happen. Law fairs take place at most universities across the country in the autumn term, so look out for posters and careers service emails to find out about yours. When it arrives at your university, the law fair will commandeer a large space like a sports hall or conference centre. Firms will bring large exhibition stands to grab your attention and quirky (or not so quirky) freebies to seduce you.

Man Installs a Charity Fridge Outside His Home 10.9K 213ShareNew In all my enthusiasm for stories about refrigerators, somehow I missed this very sweet one from Saudi Arabia.
