Nick Hardwick, Chief Inspector of Prisons and alumni of the University will be on campus tomorrow (Friday 17 October). He will be giving a talk and Q&A session at 3.15-4.05 in LT02 in Wilberforce. Everyone is welcome.

Dear student,

Applications are now invited from second, third and final year Undergraduate Graduate and Post Graduate students who are interested in being mentored by a representative from an employer that the Careers and Employability Service works with. These mentors are individuals who are interested in supporting the employability of our Law Students and work for a wide variety of organisations including solicitors firms and large corporate businesses.

Mentoring will take place from November 2013 – May 2014 and will be online via email.  Therefore, it is possible that you will not meet your mentor face-to-face, and they may not be located close to the University, but this gives us the flexibility to attract mentors from beyond the Hull and East Yorkshire region.
