    Success within the legal profession depends upon making and maintaining meaningful contacts and connections. The demographic of some areas of the profession appear to show these to be the preserve of a particular and perhaps restricted group. Lawyers who are women, BMEs, openly LGBT, have disabilities, or come from non-traditional and under-represented backgrounds, etc., may not always enter the profession with the benefit of the kinds of connections most helpful in the law.

    What kinds of things might corporate in-house lawyers who are responsible for, or trying to support, their companies’ equality, diversity and inclusion goals do to foster and support similar efforts within law firms and chambers? How might these efforts become more deeply embedded within the culture of the profession? And what might lawyers who practice within law firms and chambers do to help corporate clients and their in-house counsel meet and achieve their diversity, equality and inclusion goals and objectives? Can mutual efforts to foster and support more effective diversity, equality and inclusion efforts serve as a basis for lawyers in corporations, law firms and chambers to make connections and build relationships for the betterment of the individual lawyers, their companies, law firms and chambers, and the profession?

    Are lawyers in the UK and the US pursuing similar or different diversity, equality and inclusion goals? Are they implementing similar or different strategies? What can British and American lawyers learn from each other about how to do this more effectively?

    Please join us for a candid conversation during which British and American lawyers seek to find answers to the questions above, and pose many more.

    Featuring guest speaker Cathy Tang.

    Practising law in a law firm, chamber, corporate law department, government agency or charitable organisation is like a competitive sport. A strong offence is the key to success. There are different teams and divisions, star players and bench-warmers. And there are also rules. Rules of the Game is the playbook lawyers and law students need if they want to spend more time in the end zone than on the sidelines. 

    Rules of the Game teaches law students and newer lawyers, especially those who are BMEs, women, openly LGBT, or come from under-represented backgrounds the unwritten rules necessary to rise to – and thrive within – the highest levels of the legal profession.

    Rules of the Game is a two hour interactive programme that trains smart law students and newer lawyers to be strategic, successful lawyers. Through interactive presentations, participants discover the competitive tools that they need to interpret, understand, function, survive and thrive in today’s legal environments. 

    Sharon Jones, CEO of Jones Diversity Group, will be presenting.

    Networking Reception to follow.
