Legal Cheek is joining forces with Fletchers, one of Britain’s leading clinical negligence and serious injury law firms, to host a careers advice session for students looking for a career beyond corporate law. There are 50 free places up for grabs.

The exclusive Q&A takes place on the evening of Wednesday 1 March at The Hive in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. A panel of leading solicitors and barristers will discuss developments in the high-value medical negligence field, talk about some of the major cases they have worked on, and share their careers advice with the next generation of lawyers.

After the hour-long panel debate — which runs from 6-7pm — there will be drinks and networking, where students will have the opportunity to meet the speakers in person and discuss their career plans with Fletchers’ graduate recruitment team.

The panellists are: Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers; Christopher Melton QC, specialist catastrophic injury barrister; Adrian Denson, head of Fletchers’ serious injury practice; Mark Tempest, head of the serious injuries unit of Fletchers’ medical negligence practice; and Fletchers senior medical negligence lawyer Sue Taylor. The session will be chaired by Legal Cheek publisher Alex Aldridge.

Apply to attend here by submitting a CV and two questions for the panel. The CVs of those offered places will be passed on to Fletchers’ graduate recruitment team.

Students of all levels are welcome, but places are limited.
