Legal Cheek is coming to Leeds this week for the latest in its new 2023 series of IN-PERSON Secrets to Success events – in association with The University of Law (ULaw) – to help students boost their commercial awareness ahead of vacation schemes and training contract interviews.

The event takes place on Wednesday 8 March at ULaw Leeds, and features lawyers and graduate recruitment teams from Eversheds Sutherland, Pinsent Masons and Walker Morris, alongside a careers expert from ULaw.

The speakers will share their secrets to success, telling the stories of their career journeys, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms. Also up for discussion will be the key commercial awareness topics students need to have on their radar.
