Legal Cheek and Fletchers team up to hold careers advice session for students with leading solicitors and barristers


Britain’s biggest clinical negligence and serious injury law firm is hosting a free careers advice session for students looking for a career beyond corporate law — with 50 places up for grabs.

The exclusive Q&A session, which takes place on the evening of Thursday 3 March at Fletchers, will feature a panel of leading solicitors and barristers in the field.

All students selected to attend will gain an automatic interview for Fletchers’ month-long paid summer vacation scheme.

The event is open to all students — both law and non-law. Fletchers is covering the cost of return train fares from the North West area to its Southport headquarters where the session will be held.

After the hour-long panel debate — which runs from 6:30-7:30pm — there will be drinks and networking, where students will have the opportunity to meet the speakers in person and discuss their career plans with Fletchers’ graduate recruitment team.

The panellists are:

Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers

Amanda Yip QC, Specialist serious injury silk and deputy High Court judge

Adrian Denson, Head of Fletchers’ serious injury practice

Mark Tempest, Head of the serious injuries unit of Fletchers’ medical negligence practice

The session will be chaired by Legal Cheek publisher Alex Aldridge, with the audience of 50 students grilling the panellists with questions about the issues affecting serious injury law, the fascinating cases they have worked on and the prospects for the next generation of lawyers seeking careers in this area.

Develop your industry knowledge and place yourself at the head of the queue for the one of the best regarded serious injury law vac schemes in the land. Apply to attend here. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.
