The Legal Cheek Scottish Virtual Law Fair 2021 took place from 2pm to 5pm on Thursday 14 October. We’ll be back with news of our 2022 version in the New Year.
Drawing on Legal Cheek‘s unparalleled law student subscriber and follower base, as well as its campus ambassador network across all the Scottish university law schools, the Fair gives students from all parts of Scotland the opportunity to meet the nation’s leading law firms from their laptops.
As well as opportunities to have video walk-ins with the law firms, the Fair features five careers and commercial workshops delivered by leading lawyers and graduate recruiters.

How it works
The Fair features a virtual expo hall divided between large, medium and small booths. There are also a number of breakout workshops running at scheduled times over the course of the Fair. Students wander between the booths while also attending any workshops they are interested in.
Inside the booths there is a livestream that allows students to join in video chats with lawyers, graduate recruitment experts and trainees. Students can also submit written questions in the live chats and browse custom firm content.
If you are a law firm who would like to get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
