We're a mouthy bunch here at LC.N, so we thought why not harness that verbosity for the power of good and put our words down on paper (well, screen).

Francesca Clixby - Winter vacation schemes: get your skates on to secure some work experience for the festive season
If you’re anything like the student law society representatives we met last week, many of you will have barely touched the ground since term began.

Second-year law students and final-year non-lawyers - you have a chance to outstrip the competition. But it’s going to be harder than you think. CityLawLIVE can help.
