Hear from the professionals who are shaking up the legal industry at ‘The Pioneers’, a collaboration between The University of Law (ULaw) and Legal Cheek.

The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 12 March at Rich Mix, Shoreditch, London, and features Eloise Skinner, wellness blogger and associate at Cleary Gottlieb; Dana Denis Smith, the founder of the First 100 Years project, as well as flexible working legal tech company Obelisk; Harini Iyengar, Women's Equality Party candidate and barrister at 11KBW; Wynne Lawrence, climate risk and resilience senior associate at Clyde & Co; and Jonathan Andrews, disability campaigner and associate in Reed Smith’s entertainment and media team.

Each speaker will deliver a TED-style talk about how they have helped to bring about change in their respective fields, and share their advice with students hoping to follow in their footsteps. There will then be a panel session chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, with questions from the audience.

Afterwards the speakers will join attendees for networking over canapes and drinks.
