Why should you attend this event?
Want to learn what it’s like to be a senior associate or head of legal? Trying to decide if private practice is for you, or will you answer the in-house calling? In this “Day in the Life” discussion, we’ll discuss all that and more, with insights into the day-to-day of seasoned professionals in the tech law sector, from both a private practice and in-house perspective. We’ll be discussing the speaker's experiences of working in law as a woman and specifically in the world of tech, broaching advances in the AI and emerging tech spaces, and getting into detail about the path to more senior roles. Ask your burning questions during our live Q&A at the end of the session, where our expert panellists can add further depth and provide valuable and practical takeaways that you can apply to your daily practice.
