Aspiring Solicitors to launch Alumni Network
Aspiring Solicitors is delighted to announce that it will be launching the AS Alumni Network on 12 June at Barclays HQ, Canary Wharf. The first in a series of events will feature industry leader guest speakers who’ll be sharing insights and advice on how to succeed as a diverse junior lawyer. The launch, which will be attended by a number of in-house legal professionals from the likes of Barclays, ASOS, Merrill Lynch and more, will be an invaluable networking opportunity for alumni who started their career journeys with AS.
This event marks the qualification of the organisation’s first large cohort of members when AS was established in 2014. Since then, the UK’s largest diversity and inclusion platform for aspiring solicitors has helped its members to secure over 1,300 vacation schemes and training contracts.
AS recognises the need to continue to support its members beyond their training contracts and to help firms create an environment in which their diverse candidates can develop into exceptional lawyers. David Jackson, Head of Legal at Barclays and long-time supporter of Aspiring Solicitors, will be sharing his insights and experiences to help further this aim. Barclays have also kindly provided refreshments and canapés for the in-house networking part of the event.
Be part of the diversity movement, share your experiences and learn from peers and professionals on what promises to be an excellent evening.
When: 7pm-8.30pm, 12 June
Where: Barclays, 1 Churchill Place, Canary Wharf, London E14 5HP
Attending: AS alumni, in-house professionals, AS team
