Hot in the City.

If a career as a City lawyer is your ambition, keep Friday 11 December free. CityLawLIVE is a one-day careers conference for high-achieving law and non-law students who want to be solicitors at some of the world’s biggest law firms. Many of those firms will be present on the day, making it an excellent opportunity to learn from and network with people who could soon enough be your colleagues. The rest of the newsletter explains the event and who is attending in more detail, while there are also networking tips from the Oracle and news from the wider profession to take in.
