cJam Law: Industry guests
cJAM: Law is an exciting showcase event which enables our talented law students to meet face-to-face with senior people from the profession, to share ideas, make connections and pitch for opportunities.
This is a full-day event and we would be delighted if you would consider joining us - it presents a great opportunity for people in the profession to meet the talent of the future.
The event includes:
- Networking breakfast
- Guest speakers
- Industry Q&A panel
- Networking lunch
- Speed pitching
- Awarding of placements
As an industry guest, you will play an integral role in the event. For the two-hour speed pitching session, where you will get to meet 1:1 with up to twelve students, we ask that you come with the offer of at least one work placement, ideally lasting one week. Alternatively, a one-day shadowing opportunity will also be fantastic. At the event, you get to judge the student pitches and award your placement(s) to the student(s) who impresses you the most.
At last year's cJAM events our students secured 320 placements with a range of employers including Forbes Solicitors, Napthens LLP, Watson Ramsbottom, F-lex Legal, TLT LLP, Marsden Rawsthorn and BLM.
It is so important that our students understand the pace of change within law; how new technology is re-shaping the profession and the best career opportunities open to them. Through being part of this event, you will help enormously in achieving this.
