Developing skills

Ready for business

To help you prepare for careers both in and out of law there are many opportunities to develop the necessary skills employers are looking for. Able to think critically, you will graduate as an inquiring individual with a rich appreciation of law in business and society.

Advocacy skills

Developing strong advocacy skills is recognised as a key component to succeeding in any future legal or non-legal career. Having the ability to communicate effectively is a core aim of co-curricular activities in the Law School. With the appointment of a new Director of Advocacy, the Law School and student society activities cover a wide range of opportunities for you to explore and hone these skills in the following areas.

Bristol University Law School is a passport. It is a calling card. If you have it on your CV you know that if it is not to open the door, it will facilitate your way in. I and my peers have all gone on to do very well indeed in the law, and without the law. Why? Because they studied here at Bristol University.
