LTC proud to partner with University of Kent Student Law Society (KSLS)

Law Training Centre (LTC) is proud to partner with Kent Student Law Society (KSLS)

KSLS is one of the largest and most successful academic societies at the University of Kent, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2015. The society represents University of Kent students in law, joint law and non-law degree programmes, whose intention it is to pursue a legal career with a specific interest in becoming solicitors or Chartered Legal Executive lawyers.

LTC is proud to work in partnership with a society like KSLS who share similar values and beliefs around offering genuinely accessible pathways to a career in law once they graduate. As the landscape for employment has changed rapidly in recent years the society has turned its focus to employability of graduates and look at innovative, high value pathways for graduates to start their careers after university. In search of innovative career pathways, the KSLS committee has worked with LTC to explore the options that could benefit it’s members.

Dino Dullabh, Commercial Director at LTC explains: ‘LTC is located close to the University of Kent and our managing director, Eve Dullabh is a University of Kent Alumnus herself. Part of our vison in basing our main centre on the Canterbury campus was to provide more accessible routes for University of Kent law graduates by way of modern, quality facilities that were just not available a few years ago’.

To this end LTC works closely with the society to inform and guide students of their options to enter the legal industry by taking advantage of the innovative Graduate Fast-Track programme specifically designed for university students. LTC has tailored their Chartered Legal Executive (CILEx) qualifications to allow University graduates to become qualified lawyers without massive tuition debts and offers practical tuition programmes that allow students ‘earn whilst they learn’ on their way to becoming a qualified lawyer.

LTC’s focus on commercial awareness and employability of graduates sets it apart. KSLS shares these values and produces weekly newsletters and monthly commercial awareness newsletters called ‘The Advisor’ which provides information about law firms, vacation schemes and training contracts and valuable information about accessing a career in law. Annual highlights for the society include the Kent Law Fair and the Law Society Annual Dinner hosted in February of each academic year at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. This event brings together over 120 students, academics and legal professionals in one place for an elegant evening of drinks, dinner and networking.

LTC looks forward to another busy year of events and career awareness with KSLS.
