The innovative industries that will shape the post-Covid world — with Bird & Bird


Wednesday 23 September, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Innovative industries that have thrived during the pandemic look set to play a central role in the changed economy that emerges post-Covid. Think esports, online retail, influencer marketing, digital health care, data analytics, cyber security and more.

For law firms specialising in corresponding sectors such as tech, intellectual property (IP) and media, lockdown has been a busy time. And as they look ahead to the future, many interesting opportunities are on the horizon.

Date: Wednesday 23 September 2020
Time: 4pm to 6pm

On Wednesday 23 September Legal Cheek is partnering with Bird & Bird to hold a virtual event for students about the innovative industries that will shape the post-Covid world.

A panel of the firm’s lawyers, specialising in a variety of these increasingly important practice areas, will share their experiences from the frontline while offering advice for students hoping to follow a similar path.

The speakers

Sally Shorthose, partner in the life sciences group
Phil Sherrell, head of the international media, entertainment & sport sector
Graeme Payne, global head of the international retail & consumer sector group

Perhaps you are a law student with a passion for gaming, a vlogger wondering how to use your LLB, or a science graduate interested in protecting patents for pioneering health care advances?

If so, you’re exactly the sort of person who has a great opportunity to help shape Bird & Bird’s evolution over the next decade, and the firm wants to connect with you and listen to your questions.

After the panel discussion, chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be virtual networking with the speakers, lawyers from other sector groups and members of the firm’s graduate recruitment team.

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