Description

The Legal Cheek Future of Legal Education and Training Conference takes place on Wednesday 23 May 2018 at Kings Place, London, against the backdrop of the major changes set to be brought about by the new Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE).

Running from 8:30am until 5:30pm, the Conference will feature a combination of TED-style talks, short interactive discussion points, and Question Time-style panel discussions. Among the headliners are big name legal academics from the Russell Group, magic circle law firm innovators and founders from the tech start-up world.

The day-long event is designed to prepare law firm graduate recruitment and learning & development teams for the SQE and other reforms — and to get them thinking creatively about what comes next. Bringing together leading individuals across the profession and other industries we hope to generate new ideas that will help shape the future of legal education and training.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Thom Brooks, Dean of Durham Law School, Durham University
  • Isabel Parker, Director of Legal Services Innovation at Freshfields
  • Julie Brannan, Director of Education and Training at the ‎Solicitors Regulation Authority
  • Professor Richard Moorhead, Chair of Law and Professional Ethics at UCL
  • Shruti Ajitsaria, Head of Fuse at Allen & Overy
  • Andrew Chadwick, Dean of BPP University Law School
  • Chris Howard, Director of Professional Legal Education at ‎King’s College London
  • Julia Salasky, CEO and Founder of CrowdJustice
  • Alex Smith, Innovation Manager at Reed Smith
  • Euan Blair, CEO and Founder of White Hat

We will be releasing further speaker names in March.

Early bird tickets can be purchased until 28 February.
