Legal Cheek is coming to Leeds 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 vacation schemes and training contracts.

The event takes place on the evening of Wednesday 11 December at ULaw’s Leeds campus and features a panel of lawyers from Squire Patton Boggs, Kings Chambers, Womble Bond Dickinson and ULaw.

On the agenda will be key topical issues including the turning economic cycle, Brexit, US-China trade tension, technological disruption and the green economy. How will developments in these areas affect law firms, and what associated changes can we expect in the legal market?

The speakers will also share the secrets to their success, telling the stories of their own career journeys, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms.

After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers, 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.
