The fabulous Legal Cheek has recently launched a new inititiative aimed at those who comes from science, technology, engineering and maths backgrounds and who are interested in becoming lawyers. This new careers network is called STEM Future Lawyers.
Those students on postgraduate law programmes (particularly those on conversion courses like the GDL) may be interested in both getting involved and in learning about the first event: Why STEM students make great lawyers. On the 8th November Legal Cheek will be hosting a panel discussion with lawyers from Allen & Overy, Bristows and Reed Smith, followed by a mini law careers fair. This will be hosted by LexisNexis in their event space, not far from City Law School.
Interested? To apply for a free ticket register online – note you will need to attach your CV and two questions for the panel. If anyone secures a ticket and fancies doing an event review for Lawbore please get in touch with Emily.
If law and technology lights your fire then there is another Legal Cheek event worth considering signing up for: How technology and innovation will change the role of lawyers, which will feature a panel of fintech and lawtech experts from leading global law firm Osborne Clarke.
Taking place in London from 6pm on Thursday 26 October, this event will see Osborne Clarke’s UK Managing Partner, Ray Berg, join rising star fintech lawyer Tom Try and tech product counsel and regulatory specialist Claire Temple. They will take questions from students about how tech is changing the role of lawyers and share their future lawyer careers advice.
After the panel discussion — which will also cover other hot areas including artificial intelligence, driverless cars and digital health — there will be drinks and networking with the speakers, a collection of Osborne Clarke’s trainees and members of the firm’s graduate recruitment team.
As ever, those wanting to secure a ticket will need to apply, with their CV and two questions for the panel.
