Law Careers Fair

Come to our Law Careers Fair and meet potential employers

Each year we bring employers to campus for our Law Careers Fair. Meet and speak to law firms about potential career options, clerkships and graduate recruitment opportunities.

The Law Careers Fair is held after hours and responds to your feedback for greater connections to employers in the fields of Law and Legal Practice. Providing you with an invaluable opportunity to meet and speak with potential future employers, this fair is a great opportunity to find out about career opportunities and seek career advice from staff from a wide variety of law firms and legal services.

The 2017 Law Careers Fair was held in the Great Hall on Tuesday 14 March. For information on future fairs, monitor Sydney CareerHub and subscribe to the newsletter.

Students from The University of Sydney Law School are encouraged to attend this Fair.

Visit the stands of a variety of organisations in the fields of law and legal practice to discuss careers and key skills required.

A great resource to read before the fair is The Law Society of NSW website. NSW Graduate Employment and Summer Clerkship Programs offered by law firms are coordinated by the Law Society of NSW. 

The graduate employment and summer clerkship programs page provides a general overview about the programs available, and also lists participating law firms and important application dates.
