Inside City Law

TARGETjobs Events is proud to work with RPC again on an exclusive networking event, that provides an insight into working in law within the City. The event will be held on 5th March 2018 and applications are now open!

Inside City Law gives students the opportunity to discover more about a career in City Law and ask those all important questions by networking with lawyers, trainees and graduate recruiters.

Students will spend a whole day at RPC’s head office located in London overlooking The Tower and take part in sessions designed to reflect the application process, as well as showcasing their skills and personality. They can hear first-hand about what it is like to work in law within the City and the opportunities that are available to them in this leading firm, through networking sessions with the recruitment team, trainees and lawyers. The day will also include case study sessions where students will work with their peers in groups. These sessions are aimed at helping students to discover the skills that are necessary to work in law and apply to RPC vacation schemes.
