[WEBCAST] Gen A | Firm Futures in the Legal Sector | Masterclass with Wayne SpannerVIEW EVENT DETAILS
An industry steeped in tradition; will COVID-19 transform the legal sector’s modus operandi and how will this impact early career professionals working with or in law? While borders remain closed for the foreseeable future, are international careers in law still an option?
Over the span of a few weeks many of Australia’s leading law and professional services firms drastically changed their way of working. The WFH shift coupled with significant cuts to draws, pay, and hours and the freezing on non-essential spending, have left many young people across these sectors feeling uncertain of what is to come. Asia Society Australia and Norton Rose Fulbright warmly invite you to Gen A masterclass with our Board Director and Managing Partner of Norton Rose Fulbright, Wayne Spanner, for an update on the current state of play for the legal services sector, and opportunities for the future of the industry, particularly for young people in the “new normal” era.
Wayne will also speak to his career in managing a multinational firm, leadership roles, and offer his insights on building an Asia-focused career. All Gen A members are encouraged to attend – our masterclasses speak to a range of transferrable skills and “lessons learned” applicable to all sectors engaged with Asia.
Date: 7 July 2020
Time: 12 – 12:45pm
This event is for Gen A members only. Registration is essential.
