Jess Rosethorn - A Day in the Life

Jess, a trainee at the firm, takes us through her life at Herbert Smith Freehills and how studying a non-law degree has helped her in her role.

The event will include an overview of IP law (the law protecting inventions, brands, technology, media and creative work) as well as the legal side of cyber security and other areas of technology. It will include case studies presented by our scientifically and technology qualified lawyers, showing how their skills and interests are involved in the matters we handle – from interviewing experts in a scientific field, to supervising experiments; appreciating how the latest blockbuster drugs were invented and understanding the scientific and technical context in which this happened, to being able to communicate with technologically sophisticated client and even prevent or limit cyber disasters.

We'll also give you an insight into the innovations in technology happening in our firm. The aim of the day is to give you an idea of the sorts of interesting and exciting things you would be working on if you decided to join our teams.

This opportunity is open to STEM and computer science and cyber students in any year, as well as graduates.
