The Junior Lawyers Training Event was held this week on 11th October 2017 at the offices of Browne Jacobson LLP in London.

The event was a great success, it was fully booked and great to see so many junior professionals attending the useful training provided; sharing experiences and utilising the networking opportunity. The event covered topics relevant to junior members of LLG such as the differences between In-house and Private Sector lawyers; Information Governance and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR); Governance and Powers; and Procurement Law. The training sessions were delivered by Browne Jacobson and 11KBW. Iken also delivered training; providing Junior Lawyers with an insight into how technology can assist in Governance and GDPR.

The training finished with a question and answer panel discussion, which gave the junior professionals a chance to raise issues relevant to their day job together with broader academic themes.

After the training there was an opportunity to network and socialise with refreshments overlooking the city of London with impressive views from the fifteenth floor rooftop garden. It was great to see so many junior professionals from all over the country together in one place.

This event also gave us an opportunity as your National SAA leads for Junior Lawyers to obtain feedback on what events and training juniors would find useful and which topics should be covered at the Weekend School 2018.

We would like to thank everyone who attended including the junior professionals, guest speakers, LLG President and our wonderful corporate sponsors, Browne Jacobson LLP.

Have a good weekend
