Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions

The latest in our series of events to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for training contracts takes place in Bristol on Thursday 28 June from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

It features solicitors from Burges Salmon and RPC, a barrister from St John’s Chambers, and a senior tutor from ULaw.


Ian Bond, trainee solicitor at Burges Salmon. He changed careers after working in business development for a biotechnology company.

Claire Revell, senior associate at RPC. She specialises in professional negligence claims.

Joss Knight, a junior barrister at St John's Chambers. His practice focuses on commercial and Chancery work.

Russell Binch, tutor at the University of Law. He was formerly a partner at Stephenson Harwood.

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.

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.
