I am excited to announce that I have become an ambassador for the London Young Lawyers group, an organisation which connects law students, trainees and junior lawyers through networking opportunities and different types of events.
In the past month I have attended two events organised by LYLG which were completely different but equally fun and interesting.
The first was a panel discussion on LawTech and how it is disrupting the legal industry. The panel was made up of technology experts, lawyers (and ex-lawyers!) who are all using technology in innovative ways to prepare firms for the future.
The second event I went to was the Summer Boat Party! The setting was amazing, cruising down the Thames seeing all the London landmarks as the sun set, as well as meeting huge numbers of legal professionals from all different areas of work. I got to talk to barristers’ clerks, paralegals, NQ lawyers, other trainees and aspiring lawyers, and it was a really nice environment to get to know new people and their different experiences in law.
As an ambassador I’m really looking forward to sharing (and hopefully helping to organise!) some new events that will be useful for law students, paralegals and future trainees!
Keep your eyes peeled and you can sign up to LYLG mailing list here so you never miss out on future events!
