“We wanted to meet industry professionals and hear their personal accounts of how they got to where they are today in their career.

“What is a lawyer? What do they look like? How did they get to where they are now? We want an in-depth look at what a lawyer’s life is actually like.”

“As a Criminology and Psychology student, it was reassuring to know that many of the people we met tonight who work in the sector have non-law degrees.” Manisha Juttla (left)

“I’ve already researched a barrister who is going to be here this evening and what he specialises in, so that I’ve some questions prepared for him.

"The concept of networking is novel to me but I’m hoping that it’ll be a positive experience.”

Raphaela Obeng and Brenda Ukay, second year Law

“We both want to practice Law and came to this event to get a realistic understanding of what it’s really like to work in the sector and ask, ‘Where did you start?’ and ‘What are you doing now?’”

“We want information on how to gain legal experience and to get some feedback on what stands out on an application.”

“The questions we have for the alumni are, 'What can I do to enhance my CV?' and 'How do I increase my employability?'."
