Richard Susskind and Julie Brannan lead high profile speaker roster for next Wednesday’s event at Kings Place London
Leading figures from the world of legal education and training will descend on King’s Cross next Wednesday (22 May) for the country’s largest gathering of its type.
Delegates at Legal Cheek’s Future of Legal Education and Training Conference 2019 include learning & development and graduate recruitment teams from 70 top law firms and chambers, over 50 different universities and all the main legal profession regulators. Also in attendance will be journalists from Legal Cheek, The Telegraph and The Times, alongside representatives from legal tech companies, consultancies and charities. Find out more about the delegates.
They will hear from speakers including Professor Richard Susskind OBE, the preeminent voice on how tech is revolutionising law and legal education, and Julie Brannan, the driving force behind the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), at the day-long event.
The Conference, now in its second year and jointly lead sponsored by BPP University Law School and The University of Law, takes place across three interlinked spaces at Kings Place London — the canal-side venue in King’s Cross that houses The Guardian and neighbours Google’s London headquarters.
It kicks off with a networking breakfast provided by award-winning caterers Green & Fortune followed by a series of TED-style talks from legal entrepreneurs. There will then be a session on the coming together of law, computer science and legal tech via partnerships between university faculties, law firms and tech companies.
After lunch the Conference, also backed by silver sponsors LexisNexis, Nottingham Law School and STEM Future Lawyers, splits into two streams with an SQE debate in Hall One and a panel session about the future of bar training in the St Pancras Room.
