The LULS X-Series Commercial Awareness Programme is a ten-week educational programme that aims to provide students with a deeper understanding of Commercial Awareness, a hugely important trait needed for any modern profession.

This year we have been fortunate to have speakers ranging from large corporations such as Vodafone Group to law firms such as Allen & Overy and Bird & Bird!

Students must complete the LULS X-Series application form.

Structure of the LULS x Series

We aim to recruit students from both Law and non-law backgrounds from all year groups. However, students who have not been selected will still be able to attend select workshops.

The Commercial Awareness Programme this year has been divided into three streams: General Commercial Awareness Stream, Technology Stream and Finance and Banking Stream, each designed to improve your business acumen and overall employability.

The General Commercial Awareness Stream is aimed at First Year students (although can be attended by all). This stream will aim to improve participants general commercial awareness skills and knowledge.

The Technology Stream will include content on the TMT industry, Data protection and Privacy, and IP.

The Finance and Banking Stream will include content on Private Equity and Venture Capitals, Fintech and general ‘economic awareness'.


What would this involve?

The LULS X-Series programme will involve debates, discussions, seminars, case studies, presentations and group work. We aim to make each session interactive, engaging and enlightening to all participants in the programme. 

This programme can be used to complete the Leicester Award, which encourages students to challenge themselves and try new things. The Leicester award will be indicated on student’s transcripts and shows the transferable skills that they have gained at university.


Timing of the Programme

The programme will run from Late October to Early February. We would have an introduction at the start of the programme and an end of series social at the end of the programme to celebrate the achievements of the participants. Participants will also receive formal certification on programme completion.
