Aspiring Solicitors workshop
March 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Being commercially aware is something that all graduates need to be able to talk about during interviews. Attending the Aspiring Solicitors session will give you hints and tips about how to research the company you are applying to and what the employers will expect you to be aware of . Zhi Ong will be running the session and as a future trainee solicitor at Jones Day, is very commercially aware and will give you an insight into his experiences.
Aspiring Solicitors is an organisation which provides careers assistance and access to the legal profession for students from underrepresented groups. We do this through a variety of different programmes and opportunities, including mentoring and employability schemes, summer skills workshops, open days with law firms, careers advice and mock interview sessions, and a commercial awareness competition. Since the organisation was set up in 2013, our members have secured over 340 training contracts, and over 640 vacation schemes.
