Who Are We?
The Commercial Awareness Society is a student society based in BPP University London seeking to enhance our members’ understanding and awareness of current affairs and their consequential impact in both a legal and commercial context.
With an increasingly competitive graduate job market, it is expected that candidates for training contracts and pupillages will know how a business is run, what the key factors for profitability and growth are, and how to make optimal use of resources.
Having said that, we believe that no matter what career path you choose to pursue, being commercially aware is a vital skill that potential employers will look for. It is for this reason that we aim to help our members understand what it truly means to be commercially aware.
Our Goals For The Year
We are planning big things for our members this year and hope to offer a varied programme of events and activities that can be enjoyed by all, including:
- Commercial Awareness Workshops
- Networking/ Meet & Greets
- Guest Speakers
- Q+A / Panel Sessions
- Commercial News Weekly Round Up
How Can You Get Involved?
To those of you who are returning, welcome back. To those of you who are new, congratulations for choosing BPP.

Commercial awareness is a vital skill not just for lawyers, but for a wide range of other careers from different academic discipline.
