Developing into Ultimate Lawyers Career Conference


Calling junior lawyers and students, your legal career needs this:

Developing into Ultimate Lawyers
Career Conference

Everything you need to know about Commercial Awareness

Date: Friday 11th July 2014, Birbeck, University of London            Time: 8.30am - 5.30pm


Making your way in to the law and then up through the ranks is now extraordinarily difficult. And the odds are not in your favour unless you take control of your career from the outset, and at every step of the journey. The conference is designed to help you do this to the best of your ability.


We would also highlight that our speakers represent every level of the legal profession from the thought leaders, the actual leaders to the juniors now in the early years of legal practice. Ultimate Law Guide have selected them because they won’t tell you what you already know but what you need to know to give you an edge that others who haven’t heard them won’t have. See our PDF conference speaker agenda for more info!
