About our law fairs

Aspiring Solicitors will deliver the “market leading” virtual diversity law fairs again this Autumn, giving diverse candidates from around the UK the opportunity to speak to 35+ of the UK’s leading law firms who are committed to increasing diversity in the legal profession.

The Virtual Diversity Law Fair Series runs throughout Spring 2024 and Autumn 2024 and will be attended by lawyers, graduate recruitment teams, in-house legal teams and trainees.  Each event is coordinated in a way that ensures a controlled flow of attendees to law firms, to maximise the quality of the experience for all participants.

If you’re a successful applicant, you will be:

  • Invited to a coaching session in advance of the fair
  • Able to select the type of firms you want to speak to in advance
  • Placed in small groups to have meaningful conversations with firms
  • Able to apply for unique mentoring schemes and legal work placement opportunities in 2024

As part of the coaching session, you will be able to create a strategy for maximising your time at the fair, using technology to your advantage and how to obtain information that gives your vacation scheme application the edge.

If you’re in your first year or a penultimate year non-law student, a separate coaching session will guide you on how to approach the law fair with a view to supporting you on the start of your journey to becoming a lawyer. You’ll be advised on how to prepare and how to interact with law firm representatives to get the information you need to decide your next career steps with confidence.

How it works

Law firms are based in virtual breakout rooms, where they will speak to small groups of candidates throughout the virtual law fair.

Applicants submit preferences in advance which allows Aspiring Solicitors to align attendees with their preferred type of law firms.

This ensures consistently high-quality interactions between firms and attendees as well as a basis for follow up opportunities between firms and attendees.
