Anglia Ruskin University has introduced some of its budding solicitors to the most influential body from its sector – The Law Society of England and Wales - in order to bring them up to the minute with news from the top of the legal profession.
The University arranged the special visit from Andrew Holroyd OBE, President of the Law Society, to give students an insight into the Society which delivers practical support throughout solicitors’ careers and is a leading and trusted authority on all legal issues. It is the third time he made an annual visit to the university to offer support and advice to its hard-working law students.
During the visit he viewed the progress of the new Faculty building on Rivermead Campus, Chelmsford with the Dean of the School of Arts Law and Social Sciences (ALSS), Professor Monika Pruetzel-Thomas, which will accommodate the Chelmsford laws students and feature a new mock law court.
Andrew Holroyd said:
Anglia Ruskin University’s aim is to help its law students to achieve academic and professional excellence and the visit confirms that the University is doing everything it can to prepare its graduate students to start their legal careers on the right footing.
Senior Lecturer Christopher Menzies said:
Anglia Ruskin University’s Legal Practice Course is a one year full-time (Chelmsford) and two year part-time (Cambs) postgraduate course that trains graduates to become solicitors.
Mr Holroyd’s address to students in Chelmsford was broadcast directly from the Michael A Ashcroft Building on Rivermead Campus to the university’s Cambridge Campus.
