On the evening of Thursday 20 July, the Trainee committee of the Society for Computers and Law will be hosting our summer networking and speaker event at DLA Piper in London and everyone is welcome!

The aim of the summer networking event is to bring trainees, junior associates, and junior in-house staff from tech clients together to increase collaboration and discussions about innovation in the tech space. 

Confirmed speakers are: 

  • Professor Richard Susskind OBE KC (Hon), Author of Tomorrows Lawyers, President, Society for Computers and Law
  • Anne Rose, Co-Lead of Blockchain Group and Managing Associate-commercial, technology, data protection, IP, retail, sport, Mishcon de Reya and Trustee, Society for Computers and Law
  • Efftichia Dower, In-house Counsel at Onfido and Co-Lead of the Onfido Women's Network.
  • We also have a panel of Partners and associates from DLA Piper who specialise in: AI and Data; Data Privacy and Cybersecurity; Satellites and Space; Telco and Infrastructure. 

We've asked our speakers to consider and discuss the following: 

  •  A summary of their career journey so far with reference to involvement in the tech sector where possible;
  • What tech developments have impacted their career; and
  • How they think junior lawyers’ careers will be changed by tech and how they think junior lawyers can give themselves the best chance of a career in tech law / what will help clients the most. 

After some questions to the panel, we'll have drinks and food on the terrace which will be another chance to network and ask questions. 

The food selection will include meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have a particular dietary requirement that may not be covered in this selection.
