Taking place on Tuesday 9 March, from 4pm to 6pm, the virtual event features lawyers from the Leeds and Manchester offices of various leading law firms, as well as legal education experts from ULaw’s campuses across the North of England.
It begins with a panel discussion chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, who will put questions to the panel about key commercial awareness issues, including opportunities arising for law firms in the wake of Covid-19. The speakers will also be encouraged to discuss their career journeys and advise students hoping to follow a similar path.

After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking with the speakers, graduate recruitment teams and trainees from their firms and some of ULaw’s campus ambassadors.
