Conversations on Returning to the Law, Working Flexibly and Fulfilling Your Career Aspirations

1.5 hoursFoundation

This on-demand webinar, originally delivered on 5 October 2021, explored returning to the law following a career break, working flexibly and fulfilling career aspirations. The session was a collaboration between the Law Society and Hill Dickinson, who  discussed how flexible working and career breaks are no barrier to career progression at Hill Dickinson.

You will hear from a panel of speakers who will share their individual journeys to achieving their career goals following a break from the law or while balancing family and childcare responsibilities. You will also hear details of the firm’s exciting ‘returners campaign’ and the opportunities at Hill Dickinson for those looking to return to a career in law.
