Practical Law In-house Future Forum: shaping the direction of the legal profession

Practical Law In-house is excited to have launched the Future Forum, a new layer of its Consultation Board designed to capture the perspective of early-career lawyers and act as a focus point for feedback between the different layers of the profession.

The Forum is led by a Steering Committee of lawyers working in different sectors, at different stages of their in-house careers and who have followed a variety of routes into law – but who share a passion for the law and for improving the experience of working in the legal profession.

We would like to introduce:

Racheal Busingye Solicitor at the University of the Arts
Emma Davidson Solicitor at the Bank of England
Harkirat Hallen Trainee at Metro Bank plc
Yasmin Kasri Solicitor at National Grid plc
Zara Matthews Solicitor at Spire Healthcare
Jamie Sherlock Legal Executive (UK & EMEA) at Meggitt plc
Georgina Swift Associate at CMS (currently on secondment at Amazon)

Last week, the Steering Committee held its inaugural meeting to discuss the topic of hybrid working and its impact on early-career development and progression.

Committee members described what has worked for them in managing professional careers that have been conducted largely online so far, the best methods their managers have used to help them feel a part of their teams and their businesses, and practical ways in which their managers were helping them bridge the gap between knowing the law and applying it.

We have summarised their discussion in Article, Practical Law Future Forum round table: the impact of hybrid working on early-career development and progression.

We will be holding further meetings of the Future Forum. If you are interested in  finding out more, please contact Alice Southall or Merhala Selvarajah.
