Legal Cheek is coming to Nottingham 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 ahead of vacation schemes and training contract interviews.

The event takes place on Tuesday 13 June at ULaw’s Nottingham campus, and features a panel of lawyers from Gateley, Shoosmiths and Travers Smith, alongside a careers expert from ULaw.

Date: Tuesday 13 June 2023

The speakers will share the secrets to their own success, telling the stories of their career journeys, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading law firms.

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, trainees from the firms and members of their graduate recruitment teams.
