Description

Online publication has proved to be a useful tool over recent years boosting the profile of both solicitors and barristers, which in turn has led to significant business development for those individuals.


Recognising this and doing something about it at an early stage demonstrates the elusive commercial awareness in a unique way that few aspiring lawyers recognise.


However, typically, it is difficult for a junior lawyer to enter the world of online publishing, with many of the leading blogs and freely accessible journals being run by specific law firms or Chambers, which for self-evident reasons, do not allow guest contributions.


Keep Calm Talk Law’s senior management presents a workshop on how to get yourself started in legal journalism as an aspiring lawyer, along with best practices and tips on how to approach online publication.


Further, the workshop will cover the ‘due diligence’ steps both aspiring and practising lawyers should take before publishing online. Whilst the internet provides a fantastic platform for self-promotion, it should be treated with care and respect.


With business development being an ever more significant consideration for progression and standing within law firms and chambers alike, this is an opportunity that should not be ignored.


This event is being held at City Law School, and is therefore free for all students.


18:30 - 19:30 Wednesday 10th December 2014


Room 04AB, City Law School


The dress code is business casual.
