The next generation of legal professionals can put prospective employers in the dock as the University of Dundee prepares to host one of the sector’s largest recruitment fairs.
Hundreds of students and graduates are expected to descend on the university’s Bonar Hall on Monday to meet legal firms from across the UK.
With Dundee ranked third in the UK for law by the Guardian University Guide 2019, renowned national and international firms such as Womble Bond Dickinson, Pinsent Masons, and Dickson Minto will be among those keen to speak to students, alongside eminent local companies such as Thorntons and Blackadders.
Since the university offers dual qualifications in Scots and English law, Stephen Watt, careers adviser at the university, said that more employers from south of the border are keen to attend the Dundee fair.
He said: “Dundee law school is ranked in the top 10 in all three main UK university league tables.
“This reputation for high standards means that employers from outwith Scotland are more motivated than ever to speak to our graduates.
“This means that there are more opportunities for them, while legal firms know that they are meeting with some of the best new professionals in the country.
“It’s a win-win situation.”
More than 30 companies are already confirmed to attend Monday’s fair, which runs from 11am-2.30pm.
