Let's talk about Legal: an update on the current market
On October 19th, the ever-insightful Graham Wood joined Broadgate Social to discuss the current shape of recruitment in the legal market and ask the golden question: What exactly is happening in the post-COVID legal space?
Hosted by two of our very own legal experts, Cassidy Bishop and Declan Frith, our webinar delved into the key factors driving the expansive market as we know it today.
Here’s a bit about our wonderful speakers:
Cassidy Bishop – Legal Search Specialist, DEIB advocate, Mentor, and Head of UK Legal Search at Broadgate
Declan Firth – Senior Recruitment Consultant in Legal & Governance for Broadgate Dublin
Graham Wood – Director of Business Development at Codex Edge, home of revolutionary software tool ATLAS
Is now the perfect time for non-practicing lawyers to re-enter the field? Does hybrid working promise a better work/life balance, and what opportunities are cropping up in a post-COVID era?
We discussed the many aspects of the legal landscape in the UK and Ireland, including where the growth areas are, which roles are in high demand, and naturally, what kind of challenges face legal professionals today.
Our remote audience was able to engage with the webinar through our live chat function, making for an ideal opportunity for the community to share their thoughts and get their pressing questions answered by the experts.
Our key points of conversation included:
The Current Trends
What clients are looking for in the ideal legal candidate
How to develop your personal brand in the legal space
The incredible value of network
The rise of the alternative law firm market
What’s next for legal recruitment
