Global trends in technology — with Linklaters

Thursday 29 September, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 29 September for a virtual student event with Linklaters.

The theme is technology. The firm’s lawyers from across a range of practice areas will focus on three key areas: the future of tech, ESG (environmental, social and governance) in tech and regulating the digital economy.

In doing so, they will consider new developments like the Metaverse and Net Zero technologies, the changing geopolitical backdrop of greater US-China rivalry, and new and evolving regulation in relation to anti-trust, online harms regimes and artificial intelligence governance.

Date: Thursday 29 September 2022
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers will also share reflections on their career journeys to date and give insights about what it is like to work at Linklaters.
