LSS NEWS, EVENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
RMIT Law Students' Society presents
Virtual Careers Conversations Series 2020!
Our biggest careers event for the year will now run across multiple nights for a jam-packed schedule, and get the biggest opportunity for RMIT students. You will get exclusive, personalised access to Graduate recruitment representatives from some of Australia's biggest firms, simply log in from home and jump from (virtual) room to room chatting to the firms you are interested in. Learn about the firm's culture, their clerkship and graduate offerings, and ask any questions about the application process to put yourself in the best position for success.
NIGHT 1 | 23 June
Herbert Smith Freehills, Maddocks and Minter Ellison Register now
NIGHT 2 | 25 June
Allens, PwC and Baker McKenzie Register now
NIGHT 3 |30 June
Clayton Utz, Hall & Wilcox and King & Wood Mallesons. Register now
All sessions will run from 6-7pm.
How will it work?
Each night will feature 3 of Australia's biggest law firms in each session, allowing students the opportunity for direct engagement. Each firm will be allocated to a room for 15-17 minutes and will rotate 3 times in order to speak to all students one on one in each breakout room. At the conclusion of the 3 rotations, students will then return to the main room and a final wrap up will be conducted and any additional information will be provided.
This is a unique career opportunity just for RMIT JD students! This is your chance to ask all those questions you may have about grad jobs and clerkships, and find out about application processes and what exactly these firms are looking for. Unlike large careers fairs where it's difficult to speak in person, this event will allow students to have meaningful conversations and find out more about each firm in a more casual and no-pressure environment.
Career's Guide Launch 2020
We are super excited to offer the first taste of the 2020 RMIT Law Students' Society Careers Guide, ahead of its official launch in a few weeks' time. This guide will offer priceless career guidance, firm profiles, tip and tricks for grad jobs, and so much more! And best of all, it is totally free for RMIT JD students.
Go through the guide and get a feel for the firm culture and offerings of the law firms featuring in our Careers Conversations sessions - and come armed with questions!
