Top lawyers join experts from BPP University Law School, NOTICED and PRIME to help prep students — for free — ahead of the training contract application deadline
With exams over, and students’ attention turning once more to training contract applications, Legal Cheek is bringing together a host of leading City lawyers, legal educators and diversity organisations for an evening of careers advice and networking.
‘How to make it as a City lawyer’ takes place on the evening of Wednesday 4 July at BPP University Law School in Holborn, central London. It kicks off at 6pm with a panel discussion featuring Baker McKenzie corporate partner Kirsty Wilson, Hogan Lovells litigation partner Rebecca Wales and Mayer Brown senior associate Emma Sturt. All three trained with their respective firms, and have since risen through the ranks.
They will be joined by BPP University LPC lecturer Charlie Radcliffe, formerly a City lawyer who assisted his firm with the graduate recruitment process, and NOTICED co-chair Ramesh Pani, a lawyer at Ashurst, in a Q&A chaired by Legal Cheek editor Tom Connelly. Students — who can apply to attend the free event below — will be able to ask the speakers any questions they like during the Question Time-style session.
Afterwards there will be drinks and networking with the speakers, trainees from their firms and representatives from NOTICED and PRIME, two City law diversity networks.
Apply to attend here. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel. Students of all levels are welcome, but places are limited.
