Entry is free and welcome to anyone interested studying in the UK, whether you have already applied or are just interested in more information! Registration can be found at the bottom of the page.
During the event, you will have the opportunity to meet a number of representatives (including Law academics) from UK Law Schools that have made the trip to Canada in order to speak to students in person. You will also be able to talk to our student advisors (who have studied in the UK themselves) about anything you have questions about. You can book a meeting with an advisor and you can go around to speak to the universities that are at the fair throughout the evening. When you arrive, you will have to "check in" at the information desk. After you have done that, you can walk around the room as you like and talk to universities, advisors and gather information.
We will also be having a social meet and greet after the fair. This will be an opportunity to network casually with representatives from the law school, other students, and most importantly Canadian alumni who have completed their law studies in the UK already. It will be a great chance to hear a bit more about their experience during their time in the UK and while transferring back to Canada and seeking employment.
The Alumni Mixer will take place right after the fair so you don't even need to travel in between. Most students will stay for both the fair and alumni mixer but if you're only able to attend one, that's fine! Just let us know with your registration which activities you plan to attend.
During the evening, you will have the opportunity to chat with one of our advisors. If you want an advising session (15 minutes where you can sit and talk one-on-one with an advisor about your application or questions), this must be booked in advance. When you register for the event, you will receive more information on how to book this.
Advising sessions are very popular and fill up very quickly, so sign up early! If you are unable to book an appointment with an advisor, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can put you on a waitlist or try to find an alternative option for you.
All of our university partners will be present at the fair! You can see a complete list on the right of this page. To speak with a university, just go to their booth and feel free to ask them any questions you may have. Don’t be nervous about approaching them – they are very friendly and eager to get to know you! You may even end up having one of the representatives as a professor during your law degree!
TOP TIP: Think about any key questions or concerns you have before the event and write them down. You can bring your list with you to reference when you speak to each university and even take notes to reflect on when the fair is over!
If you don’t have any specific questions that come to mind, just ask them to tell you about their programme, what extracurricular activities are available, such as mooting or law societies, or what sets their university apart from other law schools. If you are trying to narrow down your choices between a few law schools, this is the perfect chance for you to speak with them each and to ask them about the most important factors for you in choosing your law school.
This is a unique opportunity to talk to the universities at your leisure! It doesn’t have to be only about the law school in particular. Maybe you aren’t sure about living in university accommodation and want to hear about private options near campus. Maybe you love sports or the arts and want to ensure you’ll have the best chance of continuing with your activities during your studies. Maybe you want to really embrace being in the UK and are looking for a smaller town/university with a “quintessentially British” feel. Or maybe you are really looking forward to the city life and travelling during your studies and want to make sure you’ll have great access to travel links. The representatives from each university will be perfect to provide you with insight into all these things.
To come to the event(s), please use the form below to register your interest. This will notify us that you plan on coming and means we will be able to inform you of any updates to the program and to send you a reminder closer to the fair. If you aren’t sure whether you’ll be able to attend, that’s okay you can register now and then notify your advisor later on if you won’t be able to make it. You’ll still be able to benefit from our free, specialised help and advice.
If you would like to schedule a session with an advisor during the fair, we recommend that you sign up early because these advising sessions fill up quickly! If you haven’t signed up and decide to attend at the last minute, or maybe one of your friends is interested in studying law as well and decides to join you, there will still be an opportunity to register at the door. If you have signed up in advance however, it will be faster for you to access and we’ll be able to help you immediately.
You will be able to come and go as much as you like during the evening after you register. You can of course bring parents, siblings, friends or even your teacher along with you. Everyone who is interested and could benefit from studying in the UK is most welcome to make the trip even if you are just starting to consider studying in the UK in the future. This is not just an event for those who have applied or decided to apply, but for everyone who wants to learn more about study opportunities in the UK.
Applying to law school was stressful and scary, but it was a much easier experience with an advisor who was there to help me along the way.
After being accepted and confirming my offer, applying for my visa was even more stressful as it is a very inportant process to undertake. However, with the help of my advisor, Vivian, the process was less stressful and she has guided me throughout this whole experience. She always answered my emails and provided me with the best service.
First of all, I would like to say that the entire application process was extremely straight forward and if I required further information the CLFA team was more than happy to help. Additionally, the support I received from my advisor was beyond splendid especially because she frequently checked in on me to make sure I was on track for the UCAS deadline.
In the end, I accepted an unconditional offer to study the LLB with Business at the University of Sussex after receiving offers from five different institutions.
I do not think I would be where I am today without the CLFA team. I can full heartedly recommend this organisation to anyone interested in pursuing a career in law.
