Carson McDowell Hosts its Latest “Work Inspiration Day” in Partnership with Business in the Community

22 April 2015


Carson McDowell hosted its latest “Work Inspiration Day” in partnership with Business in the Community on 22 April 2015.

The event gave participating secondary school students presently studying for their AS-Levels some insight into what they might expect should they choose law as a career.  The students, who came from a number of schools from across Northern Ireland, were mentored on the day by Gerard Armstrong, Marie McKeown, Maeve McClean, Rosie Timoney, Chris Phillips, Donia Reynolds, Niamh Hargan and John McGarrity. The event included a number of exercises and activities including pitfalls to avoid when drafting your CV, information on the different routes into law, topical discussions on legal issues and a lively negotiation exercise which was enjoyed by all. 

The staff involved received very positive feedback. We hope to continue running these popular events in partnership with Business in the Community in the future.
