Featuring Lord Justice Briggs and Pinsent Masons – with drinks and mini-law fair after discussion.

On the evening of Thursday 27 October a host of big name lawyers will be gathering at Lexis House in Farringdon, central London, to answer students’ questions about the future of the legal profession. Leading the panel is Lord Justice Briggs (pictured, centre), who recently recommended the creation of a new online court in his report on the future of civil courts. He will be joined by fintech solicitor Luke Scanlon (centre right) and senior legal knowledge engineer Paven Sharma (left) from Pinsent Masons, one of the leading firms in the field of technology, City University’s Professor David Collins (centre left) and Nigel Rea (right), director of precedents, drafting and forms at LexisNexis.

Afterwards there will be an opportunity to have a drink and network with the speakers. Pinsent Masons’ graduate recruitment team will also be in attendance. What opportunities will advances in technology create for the next generation of lawyers? Which practice areas will be most open to changes? And how will the fintech revolution taking place in the financial sector – which is currently keeping City lawyers rather busy – tie into wider developments in the legal profession?

Apply to attend below. You'll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel. The CVs of those offered places will be passed on to Pinsent Masons’ graduate recruitment team.

Students of all levels are welcome, but places are limited.

This event is now fully booked.
