Legal Cheek Careers event at Gray’s Inn featuring a panel of top solicitors and barristers — open to all law students and junior lawyers, with free tickets available below


Want to be an advocate but not sure how to get there? Can’t decide whether the barrister or solicitor route is the best way to go? Or already embarked on the BPTC or LPC and want to know how to plan your career?

At a time of contrasting fortunes for the legal profession — with publicly-funded firms and chambers struggling while their commercial cousins recover their pre-recession mojo — a panel of five top litigators from the bar and the City will be explaining how they made it to the top via their respective routes and reflect on how they would play it if they were students today.

The star-studded event — which takes place at Gray’s Inn on the evening of 24 March — will also consider the effects of new entrant alternative business structures on the advocacy scene, with the panellists delivering their predictions about the future and answering questions from the audience.

The speakers






The Question Time-style discussion — which will be chaired by Legal Cheek managing editor Alex Aldridge — starts at 6pm, and is followed by drinks and nibbles until 8pm, kindly provided by Gray’s Inn.

You do not have to be a member of an Inn to attend: all law students and junior lawyers are welcome. Reserve a ticket here.

In order to keep our events free, please note that anyone who reserves a ticket and does not attend will be ineligible for future Legal Cheek Careers events unless they provide us with notification 48 hours in advance of the event.
