Calling all junior City lawyers! On the evening of Thursday 17 January we are holding the latest in our series of Legal Cheek junior lawyer workshop and social sessions.

The free event — which takes place at BARBRI’s executive suite in Moorgate in the City of London — is open to all corporate and commercial junior lawyers and trainees, and will contain plentiful opportunities to be informed and entertained in equal measure.

There will be three 15-minute informal TED-style presentations, in which Kirkland & Ellis associate Hannah McCarthy, Quinn Emanuel London co-managing partner Richard East, and Skadden co-head of private equity Richard Youle will reflect on what they have learned so far in their careers.
