Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions
Legal Cheek is coming to Nottingham 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 Thursday 25 July 2019 at ULaw's new Nottingham campus and features a panel of lawyers from Browne Jacobson, Freeths, Gateley, Shoosmiths and ULaw.
The speakers are Selina Hinchliffe, intellectual property partner at Browne Jacobson; Jessica Brickley, commercial and corporate senior associate at Freeths; Natasha Dawe, trainee solicitor at Gateley; Helen Parrott, real estate senior associate at Shoosmiths and Andy Matthews, dean of ULaw Nottingham and former real estate partner.
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 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. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
