Graduate, student & school leaver recruitment solutions.

 

I am the Marketing Director for the National Student Law Society (NSLS) and we are currently recruiting for University Representatives from every university in the UK. The role requires the chosen student to act as a bridge between the NSLS and their university. It is a fantastic opportunity for law students to meet other law students from different universities, to get involved with a national society and to develop marketing skills. We are looking for ambitious students with strong communication skills to help us raise awareness of our society (we were only established in 2013), to publicise our national mooting competition, careers workshops and other opportunities for UK law students.

We would love to have a student from Hull University on board.  The role is voluntary and unpaid but would make a great addition to a CV!

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.

Having an online mentor can help you develop your confidence, give you a deeper insight into a career in Law as well as a wide range of professions that you may be interested in and provide advice and support to improve your employability. It may not be possible to connect you to someone from the exact legal background that you wish to pursue, but the mentors will be able to provide lots of general support on what employers require from their law graduate employees, what skills you will need to present professionally to future employers and how to prepare for the world beyond university.

To apply for one of these coveted mentoring positions, please complete the online mentee application form via the Career Bridge web page by 27th October 2013.  Go to: http://www2.hull.ac.uk/student/careersandemployability/careerbridgementoring.aspx

Once your application has been submitted, we shall let you know the outcome as soon as possible. Successful applicants will be invited to attend an introductory session on 27th October at 4.30 pm – 6.00 pm.

Best wishes,

The Careers & Employability Service

City Law School’s excellent Learnmore site has an even more excellent summary of UK Essay Competitions for law students. And we will endeavour to link to international competitions as we come across them. Aside from the cold hard cash (or book vouchers) and recognition, don’t you think it would look great on your CV? It may also count towards a Hull Employability Award.

Hull’s very own Student Law Journal, run by the Student Law Society, is also worth a thought if you’d like to see your name in print.
