Swansea LLM students introduced to the job market at the Career Fair
On 17 March 2010, the Swansea University School of Law hosted a Career Fair with an intention of presenting its LLM students an opportunity to meet representatives from international law firms (such as Ince and Co, Holman Fenwick and Willans and Norton Rose), P & I Clubs, consultancy firms, as well as recruitment agencies.
The Career Fair attracted 65 LLM students, who not only made useful contacts during the event but also obtained a very useful insight into the recruitment process. Commenting on the Career Fair, a spokesperson for one of the leading consultancy firms said:
‘In our firm, we usually place a number of Maritime LLM students with our clients each year. We were impressed by the quantity and quality of the students we met today. It is quite evident that the reputation of the teaching staff at Swansea is attracting good student numbers. Combined with the efforts the University has put in to raise the bar for entry onto their courses, the outcome is not just increased numbers but increased calibre.'
It gives the School a great pleasure to learn subsequently that several of our students were offered interviews by exhibitors attending the event. This is yet another demonstration of the reputation the School and the Institute of Shipping Law enjoy in shipping, insurance and trade sectors.
