Latymerians host Legal Careers Networking Event

Sixth Formers from Latymer and nine of our local partner schools, attended a special Legal networking event hosted by Derek Sweeting QC, Chair of the Bar and Latymer parent. This was a unique opportunity for students who are considering careers in the legal sector to hear from a variety of legal professionals and mentors in the awe-inspiring surroundings of Middle Temple, London


The 80 guests were treated to a speech by Derek, and the Head of Latymer, David Goodhew,  in the grounds of Middle Tempe, before taking part in ‘speed networking’ with eight stations each led by an experienced mentor, all of whom were either a Latymer alumni or parent. Other alumni who now work in the legal field dropped in on each group as ‘floating mentors’ to give different perspectives and their own advice on networking and offering insight into the various pathways into a legal career.


“We are so grateful to our Alumni and parents for so generously sharing their time and knowledge with these students,” said Andy Hall, Projects and Partnerships Manager. “We were delighted to to open this opportunity up to not only Latymer Sixth Formers but also students from our local partner schools. People who know of Latymer and our commitment to our Bursary programme may not be aware that we are also focused on widening access to a wide range of opportunities, from careers to university applications and interviews, debating, music and sport to name just a few and we work closely with our Foundation and Careers Teams to make events like happen. Our Founder, Edward Latymer was a lawyer and I like to think he’d be proud of this event.”
