Junior Lawyer Virtual Lunch - November

This is November'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.

November’s Event: Tech and Key Skills for Junior Lawyers

November's event will focus on what tech and key skills you as junior lawyers should have a good grasp on to accelerate your career and become a valuable member of your team.

We'll be answering these questions and more with Christopher Tart-Roberts, Head of Lawtech and Chief Knowledge & Innovation Officer at Macfarlanes.
