BCL Legal Careers Talks 2013
The Leeds BCL Legal annual careers talks took place on 13th March and were a resounding success (even if we do say so ourselves)!
With speakers including Morag Joyce, Partner and Head of Real Estate at DAC Beachcroft and Jason Curtis, Head of Legal and Company Secretary at Mamas and Papas the event offered a real insight into the worlds of private practice and in-house and gave away some vital tips in terms of getting your CV noticed and how to really impress at interview.
The BCL Legal consultants gave an honest overview of the market, how to prepare for qualification and the all important question; how do you decide what discipline you want to specialise in post qualification?
In a response to the Leeds JLD Committee’s recommendations we made this year’s event less formal, with a varied range of speakers and in a bar (as opposed to conference room/offices) with a free bar, of course! This all made for a really enjoyable evening.
The usual suspects (you know who you are!) propped up the bar well after the careers talks were over and it seems, from feedback received, that everyone came away with a little more confidence about the market moving forward, it’s not all doom and gloom. We genuinely have a positive outlook for this year’s NQ’s.
Below is some of the great feedback we received after the event.
“Very enlightening and informative. It gave me a different perspective on in-house roles”.
“Excellent talk. Able to have a very useful discussion with recruitment consultants both before and after. Helpful and informative with very approachable guest speakers”.
“My experience of BCL Legal during my search for NQ positions was excellent – the level of market knowledge and the communication and support offered was first class”.
If you weren’t able to make the event then please do get in touch and we can fill you in on the market for 2013 and guide you through the job search process whether you’re an NQ or a junior lawyer looking to make that next vital move!
