How I made it into law — with Mayer Brown

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 21 October to hear from four Mayer Brown lawyers who have had interesting journeys into law.

London managing partner Sally Davies will be joined by partner James Morris, senior associate Emma Sturt, and second seat trainee Cheryl Stevart to give students applying for training contracts and vacation schemes insights on how they made it into law.

Davies, who rose through the ranks to become the firm’s first female managing partner in the London office, will begin by giving an overview of her career journey to date. She’ll then handover to her colleagues, all of whom are at different stages of their career, to share their personal stories. They will then answer audience questions in a discussion led by a Legal Cheek journalist.
