Legal Cheek is in London for the latest in its series of IN-PERSON Secrets to Success events – in association with The University of Law (ULaw) – to help students boost their commercial awareness.

The event takes place on Thursday 4 July at ULaw’s London Bloomsbury campus, and features lawyers from Travers Smith, Reed Smith, Farrer & Co and Radcliffe Chambers, alongside a careers expert from ULaw.

Date: Thursday 4 July 2024
Time: 4pm to 6:30pm
Location: The University of Law, London Bloomsbury
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 and pupillages with leading law firms and chambers. Also up for discussion will be the key commercial awareness topics that students need to have on their radar.

The speakers

Alyson Morrell, family law associate at Farrer & Co
Robert Lee, barrister at Radcliffe Chambers
Sandie Gaines, campus dean at ULaw London Bloomsbury
Further speakers to be announced

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 and pupils from the firms and chambers, as well as members of their graduate and pupillage recruitment teams. It’s a great opportunity not only to meet the firms and chambers but also to check out ULaw’s London Bloomsbury campus, located just a stone’s throw away from Tottenham Court Road, the cafes and bars of Fitzrovia and Soho, and numerous transport routes in the centre of London.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
