City girls in the City

CLSG students at publishing house for City girls in the city trip

Last week, we held another careers event and it was the turn of year 10 students to discover more about careers in the City. Students were divided into groups and visited either Lazard and UBS (banking), Dentons and the Old Bailey (law), Rooff (architecture), Condé Nast (media) or Experience Haus (technology) to experience a day in the life at these industries.

In the morning, our group had the opportunity to visit the Old Bailey and witness an actual murder case. We were also given a talk by the Recorder of London about his journey into law and the history of the Old Bailey. In the afternoon we visited Denton’s and were given an insight into the life of a commercial lawyer. We interviewed two partners in Corporate about their day-to-day duties and attended an informative workshop about applications into law. We finished the day by competing in a challenge to define the most legal terms possible in ten minutes! It was a very exciting and educational trip and definitely inspired many of us to consider a career in law.
