Secrets to Success Manchester — with BCLP, Freshfields, Pinsent Masons and ULaw

Wednesday 26 June in Manchester; open to all students

Legal Cheek is coming to Manchester for 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 training contracts.

The event takes place on the evening of Wednesday 26 June 2019 at ULaw Manchester and features a panel of lawyers from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), Freshfields, Pinsent Masons and ULaw.

The speakers are Declan Hollows, trainee solicitor at BCLP; Michael Black, corporate and M&A associate at Freshfields; Rif Kapadi, senior associate at Pinsent Masons specialising in commercial law; and Catherine Morgan, careers centre manager at ULaw Manchester.

Date: Wednesday 26 June 2019
Time: 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: ULaw Manchester
Level: Students, Graduates

The lawyers 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. 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. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
