Surviving and thriving in a changing legal market

The City Law School's (CLS) Andrew Worthley joins a Question Time style panel of experienced barristers and solicitors at a Legal Cheek event at Gray's Inn on 21st October, to explore what it is like to be a law student in 2014 against the background of rapid change in the legal market.

Andrew Worthley, Lecturer on the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) at the City Law School and an employment law barrister at Magdalen Chambers, will participate in a Legal Cheek panel discussion at Grays Inn on the 21st October, titled "How to survive - and even thrive - in a changing legal market."

The distinguished panellists include 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); Sally Davies (construction and engineering litigation partner at Mayer Brown); Frances Edwards (president of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives); and Andrew Roycroft (senior associate in the tax team of Norton Rose Fulbright).

nullAndrew 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."

Though attendance at this LexisNexis-sponsored event counts as a qualifying session for Gray's Inn students, all law students and junior lawyers are welcome to attend. Please register here to reserve a seat.
