10/01/2019

Students who are considering a career in law have a great opportunity to get an inside view on law in practice from an experienced professional.

A talk by Craig Sharpe will take place on Monday, 4 February 2019 from 1pm to 2pm in the Lord Swraj Paul building.

Craig has had a career spanning 25 years working in law, partly as a lawyer and now a marketing specialist at Darlingtons Solicitors. This background gives Craig an unusual insight into the radical changes in legal practice and the challenges and pressures law firms face. The talk will be full of real world examples, anecdotes and humour – students will gain valuable and actionable insights.

  1.     What’s changed? Almost everything.
  2.     Profession or service? Both but where’s the balance?
  3.     Clients have changed – a lot.
  4.     Technology and law.
  5.     Why marketing is now essential for lawyers and law firms.
  6.     The importance of adaptability and team skills.
  7.     Practical takeaways.

This session will better prepare students for a legal career and may help you decide whether you now want to be a lawyer and what type of firm or area of law you may want to work in.

A student who attended Craig's talk last year said: "I would recommend it to any of my colleagues, currently studying Law or related courses. It was very informative and interactive... Craig had a unique style on saying what it is like to work in a law firm or legal environment."

Venue: MU504/5, Lord Swraj Paul Building, City Campus North (Molineux)
