Legal Skills Academy

The Legal Skills Academy is part of the career development centre and targets the law students with the aim to increase their employability. We host events and workshops nearly every week during the semester here at the Little Titchfield Campus 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.
