Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions
As the technological change sweeping society gathers pace, and the legal profession begins to feel the effect of what is being dubbed the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, Legal Cheek is holding a series of events – in association with The University of Law (ULaw) – to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for training contracts and pupillages.
The Birmingham session takes place on the evening of Wednesday 7 March at ULaw Birmingham, and features a panel of leading lawyers from Pinsent Masons, Irwin Mitchell, St Philips Chambers and ULaw. The quartet will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market.
The speakers are Pinsents litigation senior associate Gary Coleman, Irwin Mitchell corporate lawyer Nick Little, St Philips barrister Joel Wallace, who specialises in employment, commercial and sports law, and Sarah Ramsey, dean of ULaw Birmingham.
After the Question Time-style discussion, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers and a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.
Apply to attend below. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel. Please note that the details of those offered places will be shared with the organisations represented at the event.
