Careers in Law Week 2020

The Career Development Centre partnered with the Law School to run a Law Careers Seminar Series throughout Semester 1 2020/21 with lots of firms, alumni and organisations taking part to help support student career development.

The Virtual Graduate Jobs Fair was attended by many leading law firms and organisations including:
Arthur Cox - Matheson- Fieldfisher - DLA Piper - Ronan Jermyn Daly - Eversheds Sutherland - Pinsent Mason - Maples and Calder - Public Appointments Service - Irish Tax Institute

The Graduate Jobs Fair 2020 was the Career Development Centre’s flagship event of the year and provided students with the opportunity to connect with 90+ graduate employers including many leading law firms looking to recruit NUI Galway graduates from all disciplines in 2020/2021 and was hosted on a well-established virtual careers fair platform. Students browsed employers’ virtual stalls, initiated online conversations and requested interviews with employers as they promoted their graduate programmes, internships and immediately available opportunities directly to NUI Galway students and graduates.

Further information on future careers events can be obtained by contacting Dr Maureen O'Sullivan, Director of Student Career Development, directly at
