About this Event

Bill Law (1935-2017) was a Founding Fellow of NICEC. He devoted his entire working life to career education and counselling theory and practice, as a secondary school teacher, school counsellor, higher education lecturer, researcher, writer and, above all, an innovative and critical thinker. He continued to post entries on his Career Learning Café website right up until a few weeks before he died three years ago. The Career Learning Cafe website is now archived here.

In this seminar we will revisit a few of Bill’s principal pieces of work, to examine their relevance to careers work today and how we might make best use of his ideas in a contemporary context.
