Aspire - Committed to helping you succeed
We know that starting out in your legal career in-house isn't like being a junior in a law firm. You haven't got a firm full of lawyers to turn to for advice or support. You're not alone. There are many others embarking on their in-house legal career, in exactly the same position.We were approached by the in-house community to provide a space for you to connect and learn from each other - a chance to compare notes, swap stories and sharpen your legal knowledge and commercial skills.Aspire is a free networking and professional development group for in-house lawyers in the early stages of their legal career. We are passionate about supporting each other to succeed by providing a forum and running regular networking events to share experiences and ideas and sharpen our legal and commercial skills.
Free trials are only available to individuals based in the UK
