Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Who needs to be consulted when building a high speed rail link?

What new legislation is needed as a result of leaving the EU?

What should be covered in trade agreements?

Should all citizens have the right to request a fast broadband connection?

These are just some of the challenging concepts that government lawyers have been focussing on. Whether they are creating legislation or litigating in the highest courts in the land, government lawyers operate at the cutting edge of law and government, delivering legal solutions that impact upon the lives of millions.

On 1 December, lawyers and legal trainees who provide advisory and litigation services to various government departments will deliver a workshop which will provide you with an insight into the litigation work conducted within government.

During this interactive session, you’ll assume the role of lawyers defending a legal challenge brought against the government. Working alongside the presenters, you’ll consider the public law implications at play and the legal issues that the government might face. The workshop is intended to be accessible to law students and students of other disciplines and you will not be required to consider technical legal questions.

You will also hear about training contract and pupillage opportunities and how you could start your legal career working at the heart of government.
