On 8th February 2017, Zaiwalla & Co hosted delegates from the Indian National Bar Association (INBA), the largest voluntary Bar Association from New Delhi in India, at The Law Society in a closed door, interactive networking session, to introduce Indian law students to the UK legal landscape and profession.
The event’s aim was to spearhead cross country partnerships between the Indian and British legal sector, with the view to expand the scope and interest of Indian students to pursue world class education in the field of law at some of the world’s finest universities based in the UK, offering direct access to the country’s legal market. This event was an eye-opener for students to understand and familiarise themselves with the possibilities in the legal sector, and especially the benefits of the British legal sector.
A couple of days later the delegation was hosted by Director of Graduate Taught Programmes at University College London (UCL) Faculty of Laws, who welcomed the students and then gave a presentation about the LLM Programme and life at UCL Faculty of Laws. The delegates had the opportunity to gain a deep insight about the LLM Programme and also had the chance to meet and interact with some current LLM students.
Sarah Campling said, ‘It was a pleasure to meet with the students visiting the UK as part of the delegation with the Indian National Bar Association and a great opportunity for our LLM students to network with them. I hope that everyone enjoys the rest of the trip.’
This was followed by a talk by Professor Joanne Scott, Professor of European Law at UCL Laws, on Environmental Law.
