Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions
Legal Cheek is coming to Birmingham for the latest in its series of Secrets to Success events – in association with The University of Law (ULaw) – to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for training contracts and pupillage.
The first session of the spring takes place on the evening of Wednesday 27 March at ULaw Birmingham, and features a panel of leading lawyers: Chrissie Wolfe, personal injury solicitor at Irwin Mitchell; Rachael Armstrong, private client partner at Veale Wasbrough Vizards (VWV); Sam Karim QC, public law barrister at Kings Chambers; Asim Khan, in-house legal counsel at IRESS, developers of specialist financial markets trading software; and ULaw Birmingham's campus dean, Sarah Ramsey.
The quartet will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts and pupillage with leading firms and chambers. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market.
After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers and a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.
Apply to attend below. This event is open to all students and graduates. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
