Thursday 25 July in Nottingham; open to all students

Legal Cheek is coming to Nottingham next week for the latest in its series of Secrets to Success events — in association with The University of Law (ULaw) — to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for training contracts. Apply to attend.

The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 25 July 2019 at ULaw’s new Nottingham tech hub campus and features a panel of lawyers from Browne Jacobson, Freeths, Gateley, Shoosmiths and ULaw.

Date: Thursday 25 July 2019
Time: 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: ULaw Nottingham
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers are Selina Hinchliffe, intellectual property partner at Browne Jacobson; Jessica Brickley, commercial and corporate senior associate at Freeths; Helen Parrott, real estate senior associate at Shoosmiths and Andy Matthews, dean of ULaw Nottingham and former real estate partner. A fifth speaker from Gateley will be announced in due course.

They will share the secrets to their own success, while also advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms. They will look, too, to the future and give their views on what changes we can expect in the legal market.

After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by Legal Cheek reporter Aishah Hussain, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers and a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.

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