On the 7th September 2012, Manchester Metropolitan University hosted an employability event for all of their Legal Practice Course (LPC) students. Luiza Da Costa, Training and Recruitment Officer at Express, attended the event and gave a short speech to share advice and encourage these budding students about a future career in the legal profession. When asked about the event Luiza said: “There was a fantastic turn out and it was nice to get the opportunity to speak to a number of enthusiastic and bright students from Manchester Metropolitan University. The students asked a lot of relevant questions and it was a good way for me to give advice about the recruitment process involved in joining a law firm such as ours.”
Express Solicitors works with the law faculty at Manchester Metropolitan University, taking part in their mentor scheme. A number of solicitors and Partners at Express have volunteered their time to act as a mentor for students completing their LPC at the university. “Both the employability event and the mentoring scheme allow us to strengthen our links with the university and raise the profile of Express Solicitors amongst local students hoping to join the legal profession,” commented Luiza.
