Join us on the afternoon of Tuesday 18 October for a virtual event with Bird & Bird.
We’ll be hearing from the international firm’s lawyers across a range of practice areas, including Energy, Real Estate, Corporate, and Commercial.
The focus will be on sustainability, as we explore how the greening of the economy is becoming an increasing driver of work for law firms. From clean energy to electric cars to carbon neutral buildings, this is set to be a hot theme for years to come, providing exciting opportunities for future lawyers.
Time: 4pm to 6pm

Level: Students, Graduates
Also on the agenda, we’ll be looking at how Bird & Bird is focusing on sustainability as an organisation, from diversity and inclusion to corporate social responsibility.
