A Night At The Fair

Tuesday night saw members of The Johnson Partnership making our annual pilgrimage to the Nottingham Trent University law fair. This year the pilgrimage involved turning on the laptop and joining a Teams call but still pilgrimages aren't what they used to be.


Benn Robinson and Digby Johnson along with our Sandwich Placement student and Nottingham Trent Liaison Rep Lucy Miller, settled in for a long evening of coffee and snacks.


In fact, there was very little time for snacking as around 30 people lined up to have face to face meetings about their futures. Historically The Johnson Partnership stand has been a haven of tranquility when compared to those of the larger commercial firms, but this year we had the chance to check out many a student, lounge or bedroom. Perhaps the opportunity for students to satisfy their curiosity about the strange creatures of the criminal justice world, was made a great deal more attractive by being available at the click of a mouse, rather than having to hunt out a stand buried in a far corner of the student union building.


Come what may, it was great to see students from a good many countries as well as all four corners of the UK. Questions were insightful, the debate free flowing and everyone seemed to leave with at least a smile and sometimes a wave.


If only one in five of those who paid us a call are tempted back our recruitment worries should be a thing of the past.
