Dr Jill Marshall, Queen Mary, University of London, joins high-profile speakers at the Legal Cheek event 'New Narratives in Law'. The debate will be held on 5 December at the Google Campus in Shoreditch, London.
Speakers include New Statesman legal correspondent David Allen Green, UK Human Rights Blog editor and practising barrister Adam Wagner, magic circle lawyer-turned-Queen Mary academic Jill Marshall, Accutrainee founder Susan Cooper, Seed Academy organiser and trainee solicitor Mark Needham, Artesian Law co-founder Jonathan Rose, and social media journalist Emily Jupp of The Independent.
They will discuss how a combination of post-Google business models, the emerging start-up scene and the blurring between legal practice and journalism/academia will change the shape of the legal profession for today's law students and junior lawyers. How will it look in 5-10 years time? And how can those starting out in law best position themselves to take advantage of the changes?
Places are free, but early booking is recommended. Visit the Legal Cheek website for more information.
