Reading time: two minutes

Applications are now open for LawCareers.Net’s legal careers conferences, LawCareersNetLIVE, taking place in November and December later this year.

The LawCareersNetLIVE conferences are for aspiring lawyers who want to learn more about how to build a fulfilling career as a solicitor. The events are timed to maximise the benefit to students intending to apply for 2023 vacation scheme and training contracts in 2023.

The comprehensive programme features a mixture of panel discussions, workshops and networking – all aiming to provide first-hand insights into the work of a commercial solicitor and allow delegates to hear from recruiters, trainees and partners at leading law firms.

The dates and locations of this year’s LawCareersNetLIVE events are:

  • Manchester – Friday 25 November 2022;
  • London – Friday 2 December 2022; and
  • Virtual – Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 December 2022.

Applicants can apply for only one LawCareersNetLIVE event. The programme is identical at all events and delegates should select the event that best suits them in terms of location and sponsor firms.

A range of top law firms, including Baker McKenzie, Jones Day, Osborne Clarke LLP, Ropes & Gray International LLP, Shoosmiths and Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP, are sponsoring this year’s LawCareersNetLIVE conferences. They will be running their own individual practice area workshops and taking part in the panel discussion and networking sessions.

Previous firm-led workshop topics include banking, global disputes, real estate, M&A insurance and asset finance.
