The Legal Cheek UK Virtual Law Fair Series runs throughout autumn 2020, with four fairs taking place from 1:50pm to 5pm in September (Tues 8), October (Thurs 8), November (Tues 10) and December (Thurs 3). Each has capacity for up to 5,000 students, making them the largest legal careers events in the UK.
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. Students based overseas who intend to qualify as solicitors and are eligible to work in the UK are also encouraged to attend.

How it works
Each participating law firm has a branded virtual booth with 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. Meanwhile, there is an option to replace your video livestream with static video content for periods during the law fair.
The booths are located within a virtual expo hall, which students can wander through, visiting the various booths.
During the law fair students can join separate 30-minute long themed workshops run by different firms taking place at scheduled times over the course of the event.
