Y9 students visit Clifford Chance, Law Firm in Canary Wharf

15 Year 9 students visit a leading firm of commercial solicitors, Clifford Chance in Canary Wharf

At the end of January, fifteen Y9 students were taken for an educational visit to the City offices of a leading firm of commercial solicitors, Clifford Chance, in Canary Wharf.  

As well as a number of fun activities, the law firm laid on a fascinating and highly- informative programme including  a “careers carousel” where our students  had the opportunity to ask trainee solicitors and an in-house lawyer from J P Morgan about their current roles. 

This was followed by some invaluable advice from the firm’s Graduate Recruitment Specialist on the skills and characteristics employers are seeking.  They also had the opportunity to try out an Oculus Rift (virtual reality display) to help find out more about careers in corporate law. The visit was extremely useful for all the students, whether future lawyers and bankers or those considering other careers.
