OGA Law Networking in Inner Temple, London

We would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the success of our OGA Law Networking event held at the prestigious setting of the Honourable Society of Inner Temple last month.

We were delighted to welcome guests from a wide range of stages and specialties within legal careers, which added a rich diversity, fostering insightful discussions and valuable connections. 

We are incredibly grateful to our keynote speakers, Natalie Lee, former Chair of St Swithun’s School Council and Emeritus Professor of Law, along with former students Camilla Bingham KC, HA 1988, from One Essex Court, and Sarah von Schmidt (Fatchen) V 1989, from Farrer & Co LLP, all of whom delivered fascinating talks.

Firstly, Natalie's talk focused on the changing emphasis of what is taught in law school and the important effects this may have in the future on the sector.  Next, Camilla provided us with insights into her work as a barrister, highlighting the diverse nature of cases she handles and the individuals she cross-examines. She also emphasised the significance of mentorship for young women in law to her. Lastly, Sarah provided us with an intriguing overview of the wide range of work she encounters in the private client sector as a practitioner.

Their expertise and industry perspectives contributed greatly to our gathering, shedding light on sector specialisms and the evolving landscape of the legal profession. So much so that current students have gone on to form their own 'law society' for girls looking to apply or who are interested in studying law.
