Vicky Clark – director at BCL Legal – was this week invited by UCLan and Manchester BPP Law School to participate in panel presentations to the organisations’ students. At UCLan, Vicky along with David Southern partner at Linder Myers and Zulfi Khan partner at Curtis Law, answered questions from under graduates as well as post graduates about how to prepare and present for interview. At BPP in Manchester Vicky joined a panel to discuss many topics including changes in the legal jobs market following the implementation of the Legal Service Act.
Vicky shared her knowledge and covered a range of challenges and trends including how law firms have had to adapt to the market, how new opportunities have become more available, the increased use of paralegals and how students can utilise these opportunities to further their careers.
Other contributors included Richard Powell from JMW, Luiza Da Costa from Express Solicitors, Nancy Brown from Eversheds and Tim Bratton from Lawyers on Demand.
Vicky said: “The legal market has changed massively over the past few years and it was great to meet the students and share our insight with the next generation of lawyers.”
