The Career Development Centre is currently promoting the ‘Autumn Graduate Scheme Campaign’ which starts this week and is running until the end of November.

The aim is to encourage final years and recent graduates to start thinking about and applying for graduate jobs now, rather than later (after the big schemes have closed!).

All final year students and recent graduates are encouraged to use the graduate training scheme resource and use the engage mini site: westminster.ac.uk/graduate-schemes

Following the success of 2016’s  Seminar Series, the 2017 Construction Law Seminar brings together high profile partnerships alongside academics, researchers and students from the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Westminster Business School and the Westminster Law School . This seminar provides students with the opportunity to develop key skills for the professional environment.

The seminar takes place on the 29 November 2017, at the Marylebone Campus, room MG14, from 14:00- 20:00 pm. The seminar is open to all students on the undergraduate and postgraduate Construction programmes and other students from Westminster and other Universities. The event will enable students to share experiences and exchange knowledge with the most renowned professionals in the construction law sector.  Register for free at Eventbrite

The University of Westminster is an international diverse environment, educating for professional life. Construction projects also have strong international character, especially regarding infrastructure in the Developing World. The UK has a strong and sophisticated framework for construction disputes, which raises the question of the applicable law in construction enterprises that involve more than one jurisdiction, or an enterprise involving common and civil law jurisdictions.
