FBL celebrated Black History Month 2016 with a fantastic professional networking evening for BME students on 17th November.  Despite the stormy weather outside, over 50 Law and Business BME professionals and entrepreneurs from across Bristol joined us in order to share their personal career stories and advise our students.

Organisations in attendance included Elite Solicitors Ltd, Gregg Latchams, Albion Chambers, Bristol Pound CIC, GE Oil & Gas as well as the Black Police Association.

The evening included talks from finance experts and motivational coaches as well as successful UWE Bristol Alumni.

The event, the first of its kind at UWE Bristol, was a huge success and the inspirational speakers energised over 100 students in attendance, championing them to pursue their careers with even more enthusiasm and drive.  

The event was organised by Dr Zainab Khan (FBL) who would like to give advanced notice of Bristol Law School’s Annual Address: 9th February 2017 6pm Tunde Okewale MBE, the founder of the charity Urban Lawyers and recipient of numerous diversity awards, will be delivering his speech entitled 'No one Rises to Low Expectations.'  Registration for this event will be available online soon.
