Slough Aspire Careers Fair

This month we participated in the Slough Aspire Careers Fair.  Here at Aston Bond we love the opportunity to help out around the local community.  This event allowed us to meet young students who are thinking of different career choices and give some support and guidance to them. Many different schools attended including Baylis Court School, The Langley Academy, Westgate, St Joseph’s , Slough & Eton and many more.

Students were enthusiastic about learning about the different routes to becoming a either a solicitor or barrister. A few even asked how long it takes to become a judge! Questions varied and we feel we have made a positive impact on some potential future lawyers.

Aston Bond was on the panel for each Q & A session. This gave us an opportunity to welcome the schools into the event and speak to them about career paths and answer any questions they had for the panel.

We also held a competition giving students that are interested in law a chance to win a £50 gift card of their choice! We will be announcing the winner soon, so watch this space.
