Mayer Brown’s London managing partner Sally Davies

Mayer Brown’s London managing partner Sally Davies is the latest speaker to be announced for Legal Cheek‘s Future of Legal Education and Training Conference (LegalEdCon London) 2020, days before Early Bird ticket sales close on Friday at midnight.

Davies will feature in the diversity and inclusion session, which is new for this year’s conference. The day-long event takes place on 14 May 2020 at Kings Place, King’s Cross, London, spread across the 400-person capacity Hall One, Gallery Mezzanine and two further new breakout spaces.

The top City lawyer — who started her legal career as a trainee with Rowe & Maw, the legacy firm which would become Mayer Brown in 2002 following a transatlantic merger — will offer valuable insights into the profession’s efforts to promote diversity and inclusion, drawing upon her own experiences as just one of a handful of female managing partners of global law firms.

Davies will be joined by speakers from the Solicitors Regulation Authority, US and magic circle law firms, FTSE companies and global banks, who were announced late last year. The roster of speakers announced so far is below. Further speakers will be announced throughout the spring.
