Careers in Law

One to One Advice

As a student at UCL Laws, you can make an appointment with our Careers Consultant to receive one-to-one careers guidance or arrange a practice interview.

Careers Guidance

This twenty-minute session can be used to discuss a range of issues, from making applications, decisions about life after UCL and planning next steps, exploring options related to your degree and gaining new skills, to what to expect at interviews or assessment centres and how to market your degree, skills and experience to employers.

Bookings can be made online up to 7 days in advance using your My UCL Careers account. If you have any questions about the online booking system please contact UCL Careers at careers@ucl.ac.uk or on 020 3549 5900.

Due to high demand, you can only book one appointment at a time. If you try to book multiple appointments, only the earliest appointment will be recognised and any bookings on subsequent dates will be automatically deleted.

Practice Interviews

If you’ve been invited to any type of interview, you can ask for a Practice Interview. This role-play exercise will help you practice typical interview questions for the role you’ve applied for (including vacation schemes, training contracts, pupillages and roles outside of legal careers) and help you to work on your interview technique.

You’ll receive feedback on your performance during the session and have chance to address any other concerns you have about the interview process. We aim to make practice interviews as similar to the real thing as possible, so you must have a real interview invite before booking.
