Alumni Associations

To develop further networking opportunities and career development advice for our graduates, the Department launched Law and Criminology Alumni Associations.

We are keen to maintain our relationships with students after they graduate and to hear about how their careers progress. We regularly invite our past students to careers talks, which enables them to share their career experiences with our current students. Graduates give a lot of inspiration to our current students, and practical advice to help them in their job search and career planning.

Law Alumni Association

Our Law Alumni Association, consisting of over 400 Edge Hill law graduates, is committed to promoting work experience and networking opportunities for our law students. The Association is dedicated to providing mentoring for current students by way of informal chats and careers talks. The law Alumni association in conjunction with the Law team hosts an annual Question Time Event. Law graduates on the panel have included solicitors, solicitor advocates, barristers, lecturers, a CPS trainee, a company secretary, a football association Judicial panel member and a Super League Rugby referee.

The Executive Committee of the Law Alumni Association is comprised of current undergraduates, student law society representatives, academic staff, alumni and members of the professional community. The Executive Team work to provide an exciting collection of activities for the Community to get involved with, including:

  • Annual Lecture Series
  • Undergraduate Awards (attended by Alumni)
  • Programme of Professional Networking Events.

The Department, in conjunction with the Student Law Society, host an annual Law Alumni Question time and networking event. The panel is made up predominantly of Edge Hill Law Graduates from the legal profession. It provides an excellent opportunity for Edge Hill Law students to find out more about life as a lawyer and develop key professional skills.

Two of our current students shared their experience at the event:

“The question time panel was a great way to develop my networking skills which will be essential in my future career path.” Eleanor Groves Year 3 LLB law with Criminology

 

“The question time panel was an informative and innovative way to establish industry connections that are really tough to make on your own.” Carl Disley year 3 LLB Law

As you can see from this video, Alumni and Panel members provide excellent advice to Edge Hill Law students.
