Legal Cheek Event
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have fast risen to the top of the board agenda for global law firms.
We are partnering with Legal Cheek for a virtual student event on ESG. There’ll be an interactive panel discussion about key ESG themes to help students build their commercial awareness and understanding of the topic, followed by a Q&A led by students’ questions.
You'll hear from lawyers from across our ESG board, spanning a wide range of practice areas and sectors, talking about how a new focus on the environment, social considerations and governance is driving change across businesses.
The panel will explore how this has created a demand for different types of legal advice in helping clients to navigate the fast-changing landscape of international and regional policies and regulations, frameworks and mechanisms as they relate to all aspects of ESG. Looking ahead, the opportunities for aspiring lawyers to be involved in ESG work is evolving and the panel will discuss this in more detail.
After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking, with opportunities to engage in video and live chats with the speakers, the Clifford Chance graduate recruitment team and trainees, as well as lawyers from the firm’s affinity networks.
