As the current economic climate makes securing employment an ever more competitive task, we recognize students are increasingly demanding opportunities to differentiate themselves from their contemporaries. The teaching team therefore provides students with opportunities to gain skills and experience that will enhance their employability as part of their degree course such as an internship with a local firm of solicitors, Duncan Gibbins Solicitors, which provides work placements, career guidance and work shadowing.
We provide a well-balanced diet of legal education, confidence building and advocacy training based upon the principles of personal and professional integrity, geared towards our students being a “Changemaker” who will positively influence those around him /her and society. We therefore partner with a number of organizations and external bodies such a Initiatives of Change (IoC) which is a diverse network committed to building relationships of trust across the world's divides. 'Nothing lasting can be built without a desire by people to live differently and exemplify the changes they want to see in society.' Omnia Marzouk, President, IofC International.
We also encourage our students to participate in various programmes such as the Caux Scholars Programme, School for ChangeMakers, and IC Centre for Governance, based in India, serving the needs of society in all areas related to governance. It works to strengthen governance capacity in the government, non-profit and public sector organizations with an extensive programme of research into governance practices and the International Communications Forum a network of media people who recognise that they have the power to influence society for good or ill and who want to play their part in building a less corrupt, less grubby-minded and infinitely more compassionate world.
