Monday 28 February, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually
The latest in Legal Cheek’s 2022 series of Secrets to Success virtual events — held in association with The University of Law (ULaw) — focuses on the North of England legal market.
The virtual student event takes place on Monday 28 February, from 4pm to 6pm. It features a panel of speakers from Addleshaw Goddard, Mills & Reeve, Pinsent Masons and Shoosmiths, as well as a careers expert from ULaw.
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates
The speakers will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market and the key commercial awareness topics that students need to have on their radar for 2022.
