How to survive – and even thrive – in a changing legal market
Hot ticket of the month is for the Legal Cheek Q & A in association with Gray’s Inn, and not only because the City Law School’s Andrew Worthley is participating in the panel discussion!
Andrew Worthley is a Senior Lecturer on the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) at the City Law School and an employment law barrister at Magdalen Chambers. He is to join on the panel Desmond Browne QC (media law barrister and head of chambers at 5RB); Louise Lamb (financial services litigation partner at Hogan Lovells); Jasmine Murphy (personal injury and professional negligence barrister at Hardwicke) and Sally Davies (construction and engineering litigation partner at Mayer Brown).
Other distinguished panellists include Frances Edwards (president of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives); and Andrew Roycroft (senior associate in the tax team of Norton Rose Fulbright).
Andrew Worthley said:
“This should be a fascinating evening. In such a competitive legal world it’s precisely the sort of event that I would encourage students and prospective lawyers to attend. I am sure that there will be plenty to learn from some sage and practically robust advice, sprinkled with nostalgic reflections about the ever-shifting legal landscape. I am looking forward to listening to the variety of ideas and suggestions put forward by panel members, students and practitioners.”
Alex Aldridge, Managing Editor of Legal Cheek, who will also be chairing the Question Time style panel discussion, said:
“At a time of change in the legal market, we thought it would be interesting to put together a group of senior litigators from different branches of the profession to share their experiences with law students. Would they have done things differently if they were beginning their careers today? And what other pieces of hard-learned advice do these lawyers have to share with the wannabes of 2014? We’ll find out next Tuesday.”
The event is sold out but follow Twitter for the evening’s advice. Andrew recently penned a piece for Legal Cheek ‘I wish I had known how to be a good boss‘.
