Virtual International Weekend
September 26 @ 10:30 am - 6:00 pm
VIRTUAL INTERNATIONAL WEEKEND
The London Young Lawyers Group is proud to be working in collaboration with the European Young Bar Association, the Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society of England and Wales and the Middle Temple Young Barristers’ Association to bring you the very first Virtual International Weekend.
About The Event
The International Weekend is an annual event usually held during the last week of September which is designed to connect international junior lawyers working in London. The event provides a fantastic opportunity for junior lawyers to network with other professionals from across the globe and listen to a number of exciting legal presentations, skills-based seminars and gain a further understanding of the legal system in England and Wales.
Despite the event being held virtually this year, there will still be a chance to network after the event via Zoom (sign-on details will be shared closer to the event)!
