 Q&A: Expand your horizons for your legal career

Law doesn’t only live in private practice. Have you considered a role in the armed forces, or in one of the Big 4 accounting firms? What about in-house counsel or government? Join our varied panel of experienced legal practitioners and discover how your law degree can lead you to a range of possibilities you may not have previously considered.

 Managing expectations: your boss, your client and YOURSELF

As you will already be aware from study, managing expectations can be time consuming and difficult. Legal practice is no different; in fact, the expectations only increase. So how do you manage all these competing expectations? How do you say ‘no’ to a client? And when is it reasonable to say ‘no’ to your boss? Join our expert presenter and learn tips and tricks for avoiding the most common pitfalls for new graduates in practice.
