This presentation will discuss key skills and attributes that law firms are looking for in graduate recruitment. During the talk we will be looking at a number of law firm websites, such as Darlingtons, Mishcon de Reya, Gannons, Streathers and Taj Solicitors. It is recommended that students attending have a look at these websites before the talk. Refreshments will be served in the beginning.


Craig Sharpe has a career spanning over 25 years working in law, partly as a solicitor and now a consultant marketing specialist for law firms. This background gives Craig an unusual insight into what’s changed and what law firms now look for when recruiting, why this is and why the information is important for students. The talk is full of practical real-world examples.
