CityLawLIVE and NationalLawLIVE are both full-day conferences taking an in-depth, interactive look at careers in the law, sponsored and presented by leading firms in their field.

CityLawLIVE: 11 December 2015, London – www.citylawlive.com

This event considers a career in a City firm and involves speakers, panels and interactive presentations by the experts, City Lawyers themselves. The aim is to foster a detailed and unclouded appreciation of how the world of the City is distinct, what being a lawyer there really entails and, crucially, what the individual needs to know and do to join their ranks. You can find out more at www.citylawlive.com.

NationalLawLIVE: 4 December 2015, Manchester – www.nationallawlive.com

NationalLawLIVE does the same thing for those interested in those firms whose reach is across the UK. The participating firms operate in London, major UK regional centres and in most cases internationally. They will typically have a more diverse client base and offer a greater range of practice experience in a firm. You can read more at www.nationallawlive.com.

The City event happens in London on 11 December and the national event in Manchester the week before, on 4 December. They are times so that attendees will have time to work up a really impressive summer vacation scheme application for the firms they are really attracted to at the event(s).
