St Mary’s Law School hosts Careers Night

St Mary’s University Law School, Twickenham recently held a careers night for students in the historic Waldegrave Suite.

The evening was split into two parts, a discussion between the Right Honorable Lord Justice Singh and HHJ Lodder QC on ‘the unity of law’, which was followed by a networking dinner with legal professionals.

The event marked the end of the school year and stimulated and stretched the students, both in their learning and in their career aspirations. The event aimed to show the many paths to a career in law and equip students with the networking skills needed to succeed in professional environments.
