AS UK Commercial Awareness Competition 2014

Aspiring Solicitors is excited to announce a unique UK wide inter-university commercial awareness competition.  The competition will see students from universities across the UK go head-to-head in weekly commercial awareness challenges.  The successful university finalists will attend a finals day at a Founder member firm and the winners will secure legal work experience in the summer!

Everyone involved in the competition will improve their commercial awareness which will be essential to securing a training contract or vacation scheme with a commercial law firm.

If you would like to represent your university in this competition, please contact your Aspiring Solicitors student ambassador either in person or via your institutions Facebook page.  Your Student Ambassador will appoint a captain who will arrange for 2-6 participants to engage in the competition for approximately 30 minutes each week from 3rd November- 2nd December 2014.  Teams will have a maximum of 6 members and can include students from law and non-law subjects and any year of study.

If you do not have a Student Ambassador please email us on
