Fair well.

Law fair season is underway, and law firm recruiters and chambers representatives will be winging their way to campuses across the country throughout October and November. This means that the next couple of months are an invaluable chance for you to make a good impression with potential employers. To help you get the most out of this opportune period, we bring you a law fair-themed newsletter packed with advice on how to prepare and ensure that you have fruitful conversations with recruiters. LC.N will also be coming to a fair near you, so don’t forget to stop by and pick up a free copy of the latest Training Contract & Pupillage Handbook. In the meantime, take in all the news and commercial analysis that the rest of this newsletter has to offer. Happy reading!
