Top lawyers share their secrets to success; students ask the questions

Legal Cheek is coming to Norwich 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 vacation schemes and training contracts.

The event takes place on the evening of Wednesday 11 March at ULaw Norwich, and features a panel of lawyers from Mills & Reeve, Birketts, Howes Percival and ULaw.

Date: Wednesday 11 March 2020
Time: 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: ULaw, Norwich (at Earlham Hall, UEA)
Level: Students, Graduates

On the agenda will be key topical issues including policy aims of the new UK government, rising global trade tensions, technological disruption and the Green Economy. How will developments in these areas affect law firms, and what associated changes can we expect in the legal market?

The speakers will also share the secrets to their success, telling the stories of their career journeys, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms.

The speakers

  • Caroline Dean, Mills & Reeve, partner and training principal
  • Simon Murphy, Howes Percival, partner
  • Laura Brown, Birketts, senior associate
  • Nick Ross, ULaw, academic manager and associate professor

After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be networking over drinks and canapés with the speakers, 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.
