Junior Lawyer Virtual Lunch Event: The Modern Slavery Act

This is December's continuation of our Junior Lawyer Virtual Lunch Series run by Sophie Gould, Flex Legal's Head of Learning and Development. These events offer legal industry insights, professional tips, and networking opportunities, and are run in conjunction with LexisNexis and Crafty Counsel.

Aimed at junior lawyers, e.g. paralegals and trainees, this series brings together a thriving community of legal professionals.

December’s Event: Everything you need to know about the Modern Slavery Act as a Junior Lawyer

December's event will focus on what modern slavery is, the signs and indicators, why it's important to identify these risks, and the law behind it - such as what the key requirements of the Modern Slavery Act are, and the proposed changes.

We'll be answering these questions and more with Rory Oake, Consultant at Ardea International.
