Legal Career Success Series: Implication of covid-19 on the legal industry – Global Law Student Association Event

16 September 2021 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

The GLSA is excited to launch their 2021 Legal Career Speaker Series in collaboration with GLSA and SMU on the topic of ‘Implication of Covid-19 on the legal industry and how to build an International legal career.

In an increasingly challenging legal environment, being dual-qualified offers lawyers and law students the opportunity to set themselves apart from the competition. As clients become more international, more cross-border transactions are being undertaken, and the need to have knowledge of more than one legal system, therefore, becomes even more important.

In this webinar, GLSA guest speakers will share their legal career journey working in New York, Hong Kong and Singapore, and in particular, how to qualify as a US attorney or solicitor in England & Wales. They will also explore the Implications of COVID-19 for law firms and the legal industry, the opportunities and challenges and how lawyers can better prepare themselves for an international legal career.
