The Legal Skills Academy is part of the Careers and Employability Service and targets Law students to increase their employability.

We host events and workshops nearly every week during the semester at Little Titchfield Street with various law firms, alumni, and career professionals, on skills and topics that will help you to get your foot in the door and started in your law career.

The programme is open to all University of Westminster students and alumni.
