The most recent City Law School Alumnae Network event (CLAN) featured The Right Honourable Margaret Hodge MP speaking on Women in Public Life. Margaret Hodge is the Member of Parliament for Barking and Dagenham, a position she has held for more than 17 years. In June 2010, she was elected Chair of the Public Accounts Committee.
CLAN is the network for female graduates of The City Law School. The group meets twice-yearly and provides a unique opportunity for alumnae to meet like-minded solicitors, barristers and other law graduates from across the UK. The network also provides an encouraging environment in which to discuss issues facing women in the modern profession, share experiences and offer mutual support.
On the evening of the 25th April, Margaret Hodge covered topics including the impact made by women in positions of power, the importance of networking and how to rebuild local trust in mainstream politics. Fear not, if you’re kicking yourself for missing out, you can watch it via City’s YouTube channel.
