The College of Law takes a proactive approach to enhancing graduate employability. A range of activities and skills pervade the teaching and pastoral care right from enrolment through to graduation. Our career enhancement opportunities include guest lectures, networking events, internships and student-led projects. Highlights from the past 12 months include talks from the Judiciary, Lawyers from both local and national firms, and Commercial Directors & IP brand managers from multinational companies; and a range of internships in legal and commercial departments of businesses and public bodies across the world.
The College provides interactive CV clinics and interview workshops for all undergraduate and postgraduate students to help fine tune our students’ job application and interview skills. Working with the College Student Societies, law students have the opportunity to attend networking events and dinners with the legal profession and business world. These activities are supported by the Swansea Employability Academy and run with the assistance of the University’s Careers & Employability Service (which offers students the opportunity to gain the Swansea Employability Award).
