Junior Lawyer Event - Tech and key skills for junior lawyers

Tech is now at the heart of the legal profession. It is impacting some – if not all – the traditional ways that law is practiced. It is a valuable tool for increasing productivity and competitiveness.

The proliferation of tech now commonplace within the legal profession, also brings with it new expectations on lawyers - both from your stakeholders within the business for those working in-house, and from your clients for those working in private practice.

But what does this all mean in practice for you as a junior lawyer?

We are excited to support the upcoming Flex Legal junior lawyer networking event alongside Crafty Counsel at which guest speaker Christopher Tart-Roberts, Head of Lawtech and Chief Knowledge & Innovation Officer at Macfarlanes will provide the inside track on the latest in tech – and the related skills you will need to succeed as a lawyer today and in the future.

This is your chance to gain key insights from leading professionals and top tips to help you accelerate your legal career.

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 careers. 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.
