Cirencester College First Law Conference

Cirencester College is always committed to enriching students’ experiences and ensuring they have all the necessary information to make their own decision about their future. On the 11th October 2017, Solicitors from Thrings LLP in Swindon and barrister, Jason Nickless from Pump Court Chambers, visited the college to host a Law Conference at the college for the very first time.

Students discovered the different routes to enable them to become a lawyer, as well as the difference between the two roles. Ania Wellman, 1st year law student at Cirencester, commented saying that she was so inspired by what she heard that she is definitely going into the legal profession.

The conferences was led by Ramona Derbyshire (partner at Thrings and President of the Gloucester and Wiltshire Law Society) who created an engaging atmosphere with student participation. Students were able to ask any and all questions to get the most out of the experience and network with the legal professionals.

Course Team Leader for Law Daniel Nield commented saying ‘The Conferences was a massive success. Students came away feeling inspired by the stories and the profession as a whole. The speakers were fantastic.’
