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.

The event takes place on the evening of Tuesday 11 June 2019 at ULaw Birmingham and features a panel of lawyers from Pinsent Masons, Gowling WLG, DWF and ULaw.

The speakers are Ian Morgan, associate in property dispute resolution at Pinsent Masons; Jasvir Jootla, corporate partner at Gowling WLG and Narrinder Taggar, senior associate specialising in civil litigation (personal injury) at DWF. A fourth speaker from ULaw Birmingham will be announced in due course. They will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms. 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 Legal Cheek junior reporter Adam Mawardi, 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. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
