Why should I consider starting my legal career in Sheffield?

Sheffield, a city that has a personal resonance with me due to visits spent catching up with friends during my time at University. Although the steel industry that put Sheffield on the map may be long gone, like many northern cities, it's currently undergoing a true transformation keen to reinvent itself. If you visit Sheffield today you'll see a city that's being re-developed for the future, and this work is set to continue well in to 2020 and beyond.

Affectionately known as 'The Outdoor City', you’ll discover a green, contemporary cityscape set against the beautiful background of the Peak District National Park. There's a welcoming, independent and alternative spirit that makes Sheffield unique, together with a blooming cultural scene that can offer award-winning theatre, beer, music, festivals, art and plenty more - there really is something for everyone!

Sheffield offers fantastic opportunities for job seekers that can compete with the likes of London, Manchester or Birmingham. The city is a District Registry of the High Court and also has a strong Law Society that actively supports the local legal community. The local area has also seen an influx of new businesses that are attracting more and more people to the city, making it a must consider destination for anyone who wants to experience vibrant city living and a successful legal career.

Deciding where to start your legal career is one of the most important decisions you'll make. If you would like to explore the legal market in Sheffield further please get in touch with me, Joanna Leaver at BCL Legal, by calling 0113 323 4908, or alternatively you can reach me via email at
