Legal Cheek is back for a new autumn 2021 series of Secrets to Success virtual events in partnership with The University of Law and a host of leading law firms.

The second event in the new Secrets to Success autumn 2021 series takes place virtually on Wednesday 17 November from 5pm to 7pm. It features a panel of speakers from the Manchester and Leeds offices of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), Clyde & Co, Freshfields and Pinsent Masons, as well as a careers expert from ULaw.

Date: Wednesday 17 November 2021
Time: 5pm to 7pm

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