LJMU Law students are being offered career and networking opportunities from Liverpool Law Society (the society that represents all lawyers from the Liverpool City Region) due to a new collaboration between the two organisations.
LJMU’s School of Law students were invited to a career and networking event with Liverpool Law Society, earlier this week.
The event specifically aimed at final year students is one of several training events to be held this year, as part of a partnership which will see Liverpool Law Society provide dedicated career events for final year Law students.
Only law students in Liverpool to be offered opportunity
This year, LJMU is the only law school in Liverpool offering students this training and networking opportunity with the Liverpool Law Society.
The event that took place at Hardman House saw the Director of the School of Law, Professor Carlo Panara, chair a panel with Jeremy Myers, President of the Liverpool Law Society, Gaynor Williams, Vice-President of the Liverpool Law Society, Steven Zdolyny, former President of the Liverpool Law Society and David Tarttelin, Chair of Merseyside Junior Lawyers Division.
LJMU’s Director of the School of Law, Professor Carlo Panara, said:
"The School of Law is delighted and honoured to collaborate with the Liverpool Law Society and to be the only law school in Liverpool, to offer our L6, LPC and LLM Qualifying Law students the amazing opportunity to attend the training events of the Liverpool Law Society free of charge.
“At LJMU we are always looking for ways to work with sector leading individuals and organisations from across Merseyside, and beyond, and we are grateful to the Liverpool Law Society for these dedicated events and look forward to working with them throughout 2023.”
President of Liverpool Law Society, Jeremy Myers, said:
“I was very pleased to accept LJMU’s invitation to take part in the panel session. It was marvellous to engage with a group of very motivated students and I hope we have helped them in their career planning.”
