Returning Bangor Graduate delivers talk on Employability to current students.
Today saw Ayaz Saboor, one of our Law graduates return to campus. Ayaz delivered two guest lectures to our current students, the first on "What Skills Are Employers' Looking For?" and another on "Navigating the Commercial Law Pathway". During the second guest lecture Ayaz delved into training to becoming a solicitor and applying for a training contract, all hugely insightful content for our current students.
Ayaz graduated from Bangor Law School in the summer of 2015, with a First Class LLB Law with Business Studies degree. Post his Legal Practice Course (LPC), he completed his legal training with Amazon UK's Legal Department, and DWF.
