As students prepare for the new academic year, Legal Cheek is partnering with BPP University Law School to hold a virtual event to help future lawyers develop their understanding of the legal services market.
The event, which takes place on Tuesday 25 August, features speakers from law firms Pinsent Masons, Reed Smith, Shoosmiths and Paul Hastings, the in-house legal department of bank RBS, flexible legal provider A&O Peerpoint and BPP.
It starts with a virtual panel session, chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, which runs from 4-5pm. There will then be virtual networking as part of a mini law fair between 5pm and 6:30pm.
The speakers will give an overview of how the legal services market functions, explain their roles within it and share their views on what the future holds for a world still grappling with the Coronavirus crisis.
They will also reflect on their career journeys and give students advice on how they can follow in their footsteps.
Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
