Dedicated law careers event for science, technology, engineering and maths students (STEM) takes place on evening of 14 November — with Allen & Overy, Bristows, Clifford Chance, Pinsent Masons, Reed Smith, Bird & Bird, Mayer Brown, Osborne Clarke and Travers Smith

As the legal profession and its clients embrace technology, law firms need future lawyers who understand how it works.

As a result, STEM students are in demand right now, with many firms looking to increase the number they hire. Such students may be studying a science subject at undergraduate level, or they may have graduated and already be doing the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) conversion course. Alternatively, they could be doing a masters or PhD and be interested in becoming a lawyer at a later date.

STEM Future Lawyers is the UK’s only legal careers network for science students and graduates interested in careers in law, with over 1,000 members. On the evening of Wednesday 14 October it is partnering with LexisNexis to hold its annual ‘Why STEM students make great lawyers’ panel discussion and law fair in central London.

On the panel are lawyers who converted to law from STEM subjects from Allen & Overy, Bristows, Clifford Chance, Pinsent Masons and Reed Smith. These firms will also be exhibiting at the post-discussion law fair, alongside Bird & Bird, Mayer Brown, Osborne Clarke and Travers Smith.

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

Please note that this event is for STEM students and graduates only. For law student (and other non-law student) events, check out Legal Cheek’s events page.
