The Careers department hosted a Careers in Law talk on Tuesday 8th November attended by parents and pupils from across the school.

Anup Vyas (OL 1981-1987) and current School Governor was the guest speaker and spoke about his journey after leaving John Lyon, then going on to graduating with a first in Law (LLB Hons) from Southampton University and talked about his initial experience working in the City of London and JP Morgan.  Anup is a now a Senior Director with Vyman Solicitors Ltd, a law firm which he co-founded in 1998.  Anup continues to work on high-value and complex litigation, and commercial and property transactions. He is also a Trustee of a large charity and a former John Lyon parent.

After an overview of the different routes into law, the skills necessary in the field and some labour market information provided by the Careers Department, the focus moved to Anup and his unique experience and journey into law. Pupils and parents heard about the differences between a solicitor and barrister, the magic circle of law firms and the varied industry sectors where lawyers work. There was an opportunity to ask questions and learn about what pupils could do now to help them prepare for a future career in law including developing key skills and finding work experience. 

The evening was well attended, reflecting the high level of interest by pupils in Law as a potential career.  It provided a fantastic insight into Law with the opportunity to hear from a former pupil and successful lawyer.
