Image of Law Teacher Explores Higher Education Opportunities in Northern Ireland

Law Teacher, Adam Hall, was invited to attend a conference at the University of Ulster in Belfast to explore opportunities within Northern Ireland’s Higher Education System for students considering degrees in Law.

Adam was flown out to Belfast by the University on an all-expenses paid weekend for the fact finding mission and was the only representative for Law from the Merseyside & North West region.

It is currently progression week at the College, where our first year students are able to attend sessions in their subjects to explore the options for Higher Education and career progression in preparation for their UCAS applications at the beginning of their second year. Adam felt this trip was an excellent opportunity to gain vital information to feedback to our students.

Adam commented, “The trip was a really positive experience. I was able to establish links with the Head of Law at the University and other professionals at networking events. I attended lectures on the Law programmes they offer and took a tour of their facilities at the Belfast Campus.”

Current students at The University also met with Adam including students in their second and third years that had already gained experience on placements through their course in Law Firms in London and even California.

“I am always keen to explore the applied knowledge options within Higher Education. All of the Law courses at Ulster University offer year-long placements in industry which is again something that can give students a brilliant head-start.”
