Law students: Careers event on 20 February

Law 12 February 2013

Time: 6 - 7:30pm
Location: Old Courtroom, Room 2.01 Little Titchfield Street, W1W 7BY
Special guest: Elaine Aarons, senior solicitor, Withers Worldwide LLP

With over 30 years experience as a solicitor, Ms. Aarons will share her secrets for success, offer invaluable tips and provide useful guidance for any student pursuing a career in law. She is an engaging and impressive presenter, with an exceptional reputation in the legal field.

Specialising in employment law, Ms. Aarons acts for senior company executives, in particular advising directors on service agreements, senior executive severances, bonus claims, discrimination, whistleblowing, team moves and restrictive covenants (drafting and enforcement).

Regarded as being 'amongst the best individual employment lawyers in the London market' (Insider's Guides to Legal Services), she is described by Legal 500 (2012 edition) as 'phenomenal' and Chambers 2013 have said she 'thinks outside the box' and 'fights in her clients’ corners with great passion'. Previously she has been described as having a superb reputation for senior executive work and as 'tenacious and intelligent', a 'keen strategist and tactician', a 'formidable opponent', a ‘first-class operator' and 'supremely clever' (Chambers 2003-2011).

With such exceptional reputation and praise, the Westminster Law Society is extremely honoured to have Ms. Aarons attend an event at the University. We hope that as many of our members as possible can attend the presentation to benefit from her words of wisdom and show her a warm Westminster welcome!

Space is limited, please RSVP as soon as possible to [email protected]
