The Legal Cheek UK Virtual Law Fair Series

The 2021 Legal Cheek UK Virtual Law Fair Series ran throughout the autumn, with Fairs in September, October, November and December. We’ll be back next year with our 2022 Fairs.

Each Fair has capacity for up to 5,000 students, making them the largest legal careers events in the UK. Nearly 20,000 students from over 120 different UK universities registered for the 2021 Fairs.

Drawing on Legal Cheek‘s unparalleled law student subscriber and follower base, as well its extensive campus ambassador network, the Fairs give students from all parts of the UK the opportunity to meet the nation’s leading law firms from their laptops.

As well as video walk-ins with all the exhibiting firms, each Fair features six careers and commercial awareness workshops delivered by leading lawyers.

How it works

The Fairs feature 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 each 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.
