Tuesday 20 February, 4pm to 6:30pm, taking place IN-PERSON at ULaw London Moorgate
Legal Cheek is in London for the latest in its 2024 series of IN-PERSON Secrets to Success events – run 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 Tuesday 20 February at ULaw’s London Moorgate campus, and features lawyers from Ashurst, CMS, Osborne Clarke and Willkie Farr & Gallagher, alongside a careers expert from ULaw.
Time: 4pm to 6:30pm
Location: The University of Law, London Moorgate
Level: Students, Graduates
The speakers will share the secrets to their own success, telling the stories of their career journeys and advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading law firms. Also up for discussion will be the key commercial awareness topics that students need to have on their radar.
• Ciaran Rutherfurd, junior associate in the projects and energy transition team at Ashurst
• Vanessa Whitman, partner in the finance disputes team at CMS
• Matthew Edwards, partner in the corporate group at Osborne Clarke
• Gemma Baker, graduate recruitment manager at Willkie Farr & Gallagher
• Aruna Verma, campus dean at ULaw London Moorgate
After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be networking over drinks and snacks with the speakers, current trainees from the firms and members of their graduate recruitment teams. It’s a great opportunity not only to meet the firms but also to check out ULaw’s slick Moorgate campus, surrounded by global law firms in the heart of the City of London.
This event is now fully booked.
