Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions

Legal Cheek is back with the latest in its series of Secrets to Success events — in association with The University of Law (ULaw) — to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for vacation schemes/training contracts and pupillages.

The first session of the New Year takes place on the evening of Thursday 24 January at ULaw Liverpool, and features a panel of leading lawyers: Steve Peacock, head of Weightmans‘ Liverpool office; Sarah Pickerill, director of human resources at Hill Dickinson; and Tom Clarke, a junior barrister at Exchange Chambers, alongside ULaw Liverpool’s centre manager, Carol Draycott.

The quartet will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts and pupillages with leading firms and chambers. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market.

After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers and a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.

Apply to attend below. The event is open to all students. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
