The Legal Cheek UK Virtual Law Fair Series 2022

The Legal Cheek UK Virtual Law Fair Series 2022 took place this autumn, with Fairs in September, October and November. We will be back with more Fairs in Spring and Summer 2023.

  • Each Autumn 2022 Fair had over 5,000 students sign up, making them the largest legal careers events in the UK.
  • Over 50,000 students from over 120 different UK universities have participated in our virtual fairs since their launch in 2020.
  • The only Fairs that all the leading law firms attend.

Drawing on Legal Cheek‘s unrivalled 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.

How it works

The Fairs kick off at 2pm when you can head over to the virtual Expo hall to meet 70+ leading law firms and ask your questions directly to the firms’ lawyers, graduate recruitment experts and trainees. Running simultaneously to the Expo are six careers and commercial awareness workshops.

The virtual Expo hall

The virtual Expo hall is divided between large, medium and small booths, featuring 70+ leading law firms and law schools.

Check out the Expo hall from a previous Legal Cheek Virtual Law Fair:

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.

Students wander between the booths while also attending any workshops they are interested in.
