Working Internationally Careers Forum, 30 January 2013

On Wednesday 30 January 2013, the School of Law hosted a forum that explored different career opportunities with an international flavour to them, whether based within the UK and/or overseas, aimed primarily at law final year undergraduate as well as postgraduate students. It was a great opportunity for students to explore a range of possible careers options open to them other than more conventional legal roles, including with national government, international organisations, as well as private sector organisations with an international presence.

The School was delighted to welcome five eminently qualified speakers, with diverse expertise and insights, from: the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, European Commission Representation in the UK, EURES (European Partnership for Job Mobility), Canon Europe, and the University’s own Careers, Placement and Experience Centre.
Topics discussed included: a ‘typical’ day in the life of the speakers; the nature of their work; the ‘international’ element of their work; and practical advice as to how students might pursue these different types of careers path, including ways of strengthening their potential candidatures.
