Technology and the Law

Gradcracker Summary:

We think this webinar captures a very important message: that in Law, you’ll use transferable skills and technical knowledge from your STEM degree every single day.

You’ll hear from four STEM graduates who have chosen to pursue a career in Law at Herbert Smith Freehills. We’ll introduce you to some of the terminology, as well as the training required to become a lawyer, which as a STEM student you might not be familiar with.

Whether you’re already thinking about a career in Law, or you didn’t even know it was an option; these insights are not to be missed.

Here’s one of the many kind comments we received…

"Brilliant – a great combination of being insightful and informative. It was fantastic to be able to put law as a sector and Herbert Smith Freehills in the minds of STEM students as a potential employer. Thanks to Carla and Sophie for all your hard work on it!" – Rebecca Worrall, Graduate Recruitment Adviser at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP
