Virtual law fairs – Where to find DWF this year

22 October 2020

This campus season will be very different for university students and graduates with the majority of law fairs going ahead virtually. Find out where you can 'meet' DWF this year.

At each law fair there will be representatives from both our Emerging Talent Team and trainee solicitors.

Our top tips for virtual fairs

Don't be put off by the virtual nature! It is great to come ready with some knowledge about the firm you are speaking to, but equally they will not expect you to be an expert and will appreciate that this is ultimately your opportunity to learn more about them.

Try to use your video when speaking to each firm as it will help you to develop rapport. There will always be the option to use the chat function if you need to.

Be professional and if you have booked a time slot, don’t be late! Treat it like a formal meeting, would you be late or not turn up to an interview? Be conscious of what impression this might give.

Have a few questions written down in advance so that you get the most out of your time with each firm. These for example might be narrowed down to culture, practice areas, opportunities for secondments (client and/or international), challenges the firm might be facing etc.

A final tip – always ask whether it is best to apply for a vacation scheme or a direct training contract. Firms will have different approaches and may recruit more trainees through one specific route.

 

Best of luck! Sarah Tucker, Emerging Talent Specialist
