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 Monday 10 July at ULaw’s Nottingham campus, and features a panel of lawyers from Gateley, Shoosmiths and Travers Smith, alongside a careers expert from ULaw.

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.
