In February’s virtual Junior Lawyer Lunch, we are delighted to welcome Holly Moore, Solicitor Apprentice at ITV and Future Board Member for the O Shaped Lawyer. This session will focus on why it is so important for aspiring future lawyers to build a broad interpersonal skillset, to compliment their technical knowledge of the law.
