The Big Commercial Awareness Themes of 2021-22 — with Gowling WLG, Irwin Mitchell, Ropes & Gray and ULaw

Monday 1 November, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Monday 1 November for a virtual event in partnership with The University of Law (ULaw) exploring the big commercial awareness themes that students need to focus on as they apply for training contracts.

The virtual event kicks off with a panel discussion chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist featuring lawyers from Gowling WLG, Irwin Mitchell and Ropes & Gray, and a careers expert from ULaw.

Date: Monday 1 November 2021
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers will consider key topics including the digitisation of society, the Green Economy, and the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic – and explain how their effect shapes clients’ priorities and the day-to-day lives of lawyers. They will also discuss their career journeys and give advice to students hoping to follow a similar path.

The speakers

Ben Stansfield, partner in the real estate team at Gowling WLG
Christopher Kardahji, senior associate team leader in the serious injury team at Irwin Mitchell
Lisa Kaltenbrunner, senior counsel in the antitrust team at Ropes & Gray

After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking with some of the speakers, graduate recruitment team members and trainees from their firms and some of ULaw’s campus ambassadors.
