Are you studying a science, technology, medicine, electronics, maths, computer science or cyber subject? Ever thought of a legal career?


We'd like to invite you to our Intellectual Property (IP), Cyber and Technology Open Day where we'll introduce you to the many ways in which a technical background can be applied to a career in law.


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 science 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 clients 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 types of interesting and exciting things you’d be working on if you decided to join our teams.

This opportunity is open to STEM, computer science and cyber students in any year, as well as graduates and those involved in technology-driven projects.
