Careers in Human Rights and Social Welfare
Are you interested in human rights and social welfare but unsure how that can translate into a career?
This event, organised by the UCL Centre for Access to Justice at the Faculty of Laws, will have a panel of speakers from different organisations working with different areas of law discussing how and why they pursued a career in human rights and/or social welfare, the value of their work and both the highlights and challenges that they have experienced working in their respective fields. There will also be a Q&A session following the speakers' presentations.
This event is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in human rights and social welfare law to learn more about the different career paths available, how to pursue a career in this field as well as gain an insight into what a career in these areas is actually like.
This event is open to undergraduate and graduate UCL students from both a law and non-law background.
