Syeda blogs about the employability help and advice available to Law students at ARU.
As a Law student at ARU, the employability services and the faculty staff are always there to offer support and help you find new opportunities.
In my time at university I have benefited from some really helpful employer law fairs on campus (and online), industry talks and work experience opportunities.
From gaining work experience with law firms to being introduced to helpful contacts or just having someone look over your CV, there are so many opportunities to take at ARU.
There are three teams you have access to as a law student.
The team who work at the Law Clinics are particularly helpful and encouraging. As an ARU student you can volunteer at the Law Clinic to gain experience, and the opportunity helps you to form connections with potential employers who also volunteer here.
The team are also particularly helpful at keeping you informed of various legal work experience opportunities as and when they arise, so they are an important part of your ARU journey as a Law student.
As part of ARU’s employability service you have access to the campus recruitment agency, known as ARU Temps. They provide various work opportunities which can help you fill gaps in your CV or work experience in the form of transferable skills. They can also help you earn extra money in a flexible way that is manageable around your studies.
The careers and employability service are always happy to help with career-related queries. They regularly organise various employability events and send various work opportunities regularly. This team can also support you by checking your CV and cover letters.
Being a Law student at ARU not only has provided me with the academic- and industry-related knowledge I need, but also the real-life work experience to go alongside it.
There are lots of opportunities, as you can see, to get support and help so make sure you use it and you’ll reap the benefits in your early career.
