You’ve heard from the global law firms, now meet the mid-sized firms offering training contracts across London and the South East.

Between them, Kingsley Napley, Penningtons and Harrison Clark Rickerbys offer over 40 training contracts across areas of law including corporate and commercial, employment, family, medical negligence, private client and shipping. Legal Cheek‘s latest virtual event offers students the chance to meet them and hear more about the work they do.

Taking place on Thursday 10 June, from 4pm to 6pm, the virtual event features lawyers from Kingsley Napley, Penningtons and Harrison Clark Rickerbys as well as legal education experts from ULaw’s campuses across the South East 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 as they emerge from the pandemic. 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 then be virtual networking with the speakers, trainees from their firms and some of ULaw’s campus ambassadors.
