Law students seen interacting with recruiters at Law
Professions Day.

Organisations representing the spectrum of law professions in South Africa converged on both the Howard College and Pietermaritzburg campuses this week (February 27 & 28) to participate in Law Professions Day hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal School of Law.

Law Professions Day is an annual event enabling a student-recruiter interface aimed at informing law students of their job prospects. Recruiters in-turn have an opportunity to seek out candidates they’d like to recruit to serve articles. About 24 companies including a series of recruiters representing commercial law firms, Legal Aid South Africa, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and the Law Society of South Africa were in search of law talent among UKZN’s students.
