Lawyers in Government: Legislation Workshop
Careers & Employability events at Canterbury

Creating new legislation

Providing legal advice to government ministers

Representing the government in the highest courts in the land

Government lawyers operate at the cutting edge of law and politics, delivering legal solutions that impact upon the lives of millions. Their work is diverse, challenging, unique and often headline news.

On Wednesday 31 January 2018, from 2pm – 3.30 pm, government lawyers will deliver an interactive workshop around the passage of a Bill through Parliament. Participants will represent the lawyers working within different government organisations and will get an interesting and practical insight into the unique role which government lawyers play in the legislative process.

This workshop is designed to be accessible to both law students and students of other disciplines.

It will also provide an insight into the Government Legal Service (GLS) Legal Trainee Scheme, including the recruitment process. Around 50 legal trainee positions (training contracts and pupillages) are available via this scheme each year.

No preparation is needed for the workshop but to find out more about the legislative process, you may wish to visit the Parliament website at:
