The School of Law provides an unrivalled array of employability opportunities which are available exclusively to law students studying at Greenwich. These opportunities come from several sources including the Law Advisory Forum, which is a body of high profile volunteers to whom we are indebted. Our current partners include 7 Bedford Row, HSBC and Deutsche Bank.

Opportunities on offer include mentoring, work experience, employer insight events and talks from legal professionals. Students can sign up via the Law and Criminology Employability course page.

We are inviting current LLB students to meet members of the Law Advisory Forum. If you would like to sign up please book a ticket via Eventbrite (only open to current LLB students on the extended or first year law degree).

In the past we have hosted a number of high profile lawyers, judges and legal professionals to talk about their careers. These talks are sometimes open to members of the public. Examples include, Courtney Griffiths QC; Kevin Fewster, Former, Director Royal Museums; Lord Boateng, Chancellor of the University of Greenwich; Martin Hewitt QPM, Chairman of the National Police Chiefs' Council; Tim Barnes QC; Colin Passmore, Senior Partner, Simmons & Simmons.
