The Law and Justice Fair at the University of Law

Yesterday, Wainwright & Cummins were pleased to participate in the Law and Justice Fair at the University of Law Bloomsbury campus.

The Law and Justice Fair focuses on those firms that provide personal, rather than commercial, legal services. Many of the firms attending were high street firms, providing the full range of traditional services from criminal defence to family law, immigration, Conveyancing, probate, and housing. Others were more specialised firms which focus on public law and Judicial Review; almost all of the practices were, to a greater or lesser extent, legal aid firms. In addition the fair was attended by the Legal Aid Practitioners Group, Westminster Citizens’ Advice Bureau, and the Government Legal Service.

Wainwright & Cummins has attended this fair for many years running – nobody is quite sure, but we think it has been at least seven years, possibly eight or even longer! – and every year we find it a valuable and interesting experience. Yesterday we were pleased to see some former work experience students, and we enjoyed catching up with them on their progress since their time at Wainwright & Cummins; and we met many more students with interests in our areas of practice, some of whom we hope will go on to do work experience with the firm and perhaps even take up permanent positions with us. Every year we are invigorated by the enthusiasm and determination of students to work in legal aid law, and reassured about the future of these areas of practice. We look forward to next year!


If you are interested in undertaking work experience with Wainwright & Cummins, please email Richard.reilly@wainwrightcummins.co.uk with your CV and a cover letter explaining your interest in our firm and any particular practice areas you would like to experience.
