As an experienced in-house lawyer (ex Clifford Chance), I receive quite a few speculative requests for jobs and work experience. I can’t offer training contracts or work experience, and rarely roles for experienced lawyers, but I am happy to review cover letters and cvs, and enjoy talking about legal careers.
So I approached Professor Ioannis Kokkoris, Chair of Law and Economics at Reading University to do some group sessions and individual careers coaching with the Law Faculty; and have repeated those in two academic years. I have also worked with Kings College London, University of Sussex (@SussexUniLawSoc), Huddersfield University (@BaronessHaleLaw) and @PurePotential. As a result of these sessions, I have gathered some personal thoughts into a series of blog posts here.Follow @tobyhornett
