Out with the old, in with the new – changes to legal training

It’s been an agonising time for those dealing with the often controversial  changes to the routes to qualification for both solicitors and barristers.  This webinar will introduce you to these routes including the Solicitors Qualification Examination (SQE) and the new Bar courses and help you better understand how to advise students.  Time permitting, we will deal with some of the common areas of concern  such as timelines for applying, the value and type of non-vacation scheme work experience, new roles in legal services and the types of law firms out there.

Helping Students to Futureproof Their Careers

Helping Students to Futureproof Their Careers

Description

From the Sector Insights webinar series

Recorded January 2020

Driverless cars. Robot surgeons. AI financial traders. Counselling chatbots.

There is considerable on-going hype and speculation about the ‘4th industrial revolution’ — the robots are coming and they’re taking our jobs! But what is the truth behind the hype? What changes in the labour market can we predict for the next 10 years (or even the next 3)? And what is just guesswork?

Some jobs that exist now may not be there in three years or may have changed beyond recognition. New, previously unheard of jobs may have been created. And these are not just manual or basic administrative roles – employers are talking about AI replacing aspects of many highly-skilled roles. In this environment, how do we prepare our students for their future careers? How could we change what we do for our students now so that they look back in 10 years and thank us for making them futureproof.

In this webinar, we will:

  • explore how and why the job market is changing at an increasingly rapid pace
  • gain an insight into some of the predictable changes in the roles that will be available to graduates and the skill they are likely to need – but also understand how difficult it is to predict exactly what will happen
  • consider the potential implications of future changes for what we are trying to achieve in our work with students
