BAME City Law

Find out first-hand what it takes to be a city lawyer.


How do I apply?

Whilst we we love to be able to invite everyone who applies, we only have 50 spaces available. The BAME City Law event application process is quick and simple and consists of just two stages - 1. Submit an online application which includes some details about yourself 2. Then if you meet the entry requirements you will be invited to stage two, a chat with a member of the TARGETjobs Team to discuss the event! It's as simple as that!

What can I expect?

BAME City Law is primarily an employability networking event, but you won’t find employers at stands handing out leaflets and reeling off the usual spiel. Instead you’ll be invited to have real conversations with representatives from top city firms, whether they are part of the recruitment team, current trainees or partners and take part in unique interactive session all aimed to help you achieve your dream career!

Is this a fast track to vacation scheme and training contracts?

Yes and no. Remember this event is primarily an employability networking event, you will get first hand advice from recruiters on what roles they offer, the application process, and gain useful hints and tips of information that is not online in this unique experience. It will then be your responsibility however to follow up on the contacts you speak to and put all the advice you have learnt to complete the applications. In the past it has been known for previous applicants to be fast tracked through an application process, so make sure you update your CV mention that you attended the event!

What will I be doing on the day?

We’ll group you with other attendees (usually a maximum of 10 per group) to work on a case study (a great opportunity to showcase team work, decision making and communication skills), facilitate skills sessions with recruiters who’ll offer the inside scoop on application tips, assessment centres and how to create your personal brand so you stand out from the crowd.

What is the dress code for the event?

Smart business wear. Please do not wear t-shirts, denim or trainers (even black ones!)
