    Does Royal Holloway have any links with firms or court houses? Is there any experience within law I can gain from going to Royal Holloway?

    Hey Sariinaaxo,

    Our Law Department has a variety of links with local and London based firms, opportunities for work experience, and excellent careers support. This includes a mentorship programme with Weightmans LLP in London, allowing selected students the chance to gain work experience and a professional mentor in a practicing Law firm. Another opportunity on offer to our Law Students is Careers Week, where students can attend talks from various firms and network with local practitioners over a drinks reception.

    Starting this year, the department is running an interviewing competition against other universities, judged by local firms (with the winner receiving a cash prize and the potential to interview for a training contract with a local firm!). We also have a mooting programme, running internally and externally, with the possibility of this year holding the final for this year in the UK Supreme Court! This is on top of the field trips to Parliament and the Supreme Court on offer to our first year students, and an excellent careers support, including CV help, mock interviews, and assistance in finding and applying for work experience opportunities.

    Is there anything else you'd like to know about the course?

    Summer
