Thursday 8 August; open to all students and graduates
Legal Cheek is coming to Hong Kong for its first ever international event.
The session is the latest in the Secrets to Success tour — in association with The University of Law (ULaw) — a series of events to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for training contracts. Having visited Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Nottingham and Reading in the UK, we are now going global.
The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 8 August at Club @28 (VIP Bar & Lounge), 28th Floor, Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay and features a panel of lawyers from Clifford Chance, Herbert Smith Freehills, Linklaters, Mayer Brown and ULaw.
The speakers are Mark Chan, a partner specialising in debt and equity-linked capital markets at Clifford Chance, William Ku, a partner specialising in debt and equity-linked capital markets at Herbert Smith Freehills, Samantha Cornelius, co-head of Linklaters’ employment and incentives practice, Steven Tran, partner specialising in mergers and acquisitions at Mayer Brown, and Aruna Verma, programme director for ULaw Hong Kong.
Time: 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: Club @28 (VIP Bar & Lounge), Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay
Level: Students, Graduates
The speakers will share the secrets to their 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 international legal market, with a particular focus on Hong Kong.
After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers, a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.
This event is now fully booked. You can apply to be added to the waiting list below. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
