CSS Insight Evening: Law – Drama v. Reality
Sponsored by the Old Caterhamians’ Association
Hot on the heels of our successful Insight Evenings on Entrepreneurship (at UBS’ London headquarters) and Building a Culture of Resilience and Success (at Crystal Palace FC) we are delighted to invite you to the next Insight Evening focussing on Law. The evening will explore how the profession is portrayed in drama versus real life!
We are thrilled that RSC actor and star of BBC 1 drama The Split, Old Cat
Chuck Iwuji will be joining us as our keynote speaker.
The evening will be a fantastic opportunity for professional and social networking, plus a chance to gain an unique insight from leading lights in Law.
Following the keynote introduction by Chuk, our panel of experienced Barristers, Lawyers and Solicitors will each host a table around which attendees will gather in small groups. Our experts will convey their experience and advice to each group, in addition to taking questions. There will be additional time for networking and drinks, and refreshments will be served throughout the evening.
