Aspiring lawyers who think they've got what it takes to make it in the legal profession can now put themselves to the test by taking The College of Law's online Future Lawyers Challenge. 22/10/2012
The innovative video-based quiz poses questions on a range of legal conundrums and puts participants into the mindset of a lawyer. They are asked to select which actions they would take from a list of options before receiving a score rating their awareness of the correct choices.
The quiz aims to encourage would-be legal eagles to start thinking like a lawyer and includes an 'Ask the Expert' option featuring video clips of legal professionals giving pointers on the legal aspects of the dilemmas raised.
The challenge is the latest addition to the College's Future Lawyers Network website, which provides free resources to anyone thinking about a career in law including careers advice and discussion on the latest legal issues.
Those keen to take the Future Lawyers Challenge can get into the competitive spirit by sharing their score with friends via Facebook and Twitter and entering it onto an online leaderboard.
An iPad and two runners-up prizes of Kindle e-readers are also up for grabs in a prize draw open to members who successfully complete the challenge by 30 June 2013. Membership is free and simply involves students registering their details on the website.
'This is a fun way for anyone who thinks that a career in law might be for them to test their knowledge and gain insight into the kinds of issues that successful lawyers need to deal with on a day-to-day basis,' said Rachel Harris, director of employability at the College.
