Explore legal issues with internationally-renowned solicitors and boost your legal learning for free at our National Law Conference.

The conference will feature themes around the criminal justice and insights from the book entitled The Secret Barrister. Experienced criminal law barristers and solicitors will be debating on 'How do you sleep at night after defending a criminal'.

We also hope to share with you some insights into the study of law, why this prestigious subject is useful not just to become a lawyer but to enter a variety of different professions in politics, information technology sector, business, journalism, management, teaching, policing, and work across the justice system. There will also be an opportunity to meet recent graduates and talk to them about their experience of studying Law at the University of Cumbria.

Buffet lunch provided.

Spaces are limited, so if you’re considering a future in law, book now.
