Advice from leading media and sports lawyers about how to get into this highly coveted branch of the profession

On the evening of Thursday 12 July Legal Cheek is holding a free event for students interested in media and sports law, hosted by ULaw but open to all students, at its Bloomsbury Campus.

Offering advice will be some of the country’s leading lawyers specialising across these practice areas, including 5RB media and sports law barrister Christina Michalos, Howard Kennedy sports and media lawyer Mark Stephens, Wiggin head of sports law Ross Sylvester, ULaw associate professor Peter Goodchild, who specialised in IP, new media and data protection as a solicitor at firms including Slaughter and May, and Joshua Charalambous, an associate in RPC's commercial, IP, technology and media group.

The quintet will answer students’ questions in a Question Time-style panel discussion running from 6pm to 7:15pm. They will also share the secrets to their own success, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts and pupillages in this area. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market.

Afterwards there will be an opportunity to chat informally with the speakers over drinks and nibbles.

Apply to attend below. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
