Meet the Experts Part 1: Fed up with being a solicitor or barrister – how about a swap of profession? Here are two professionals who did just that

January 26, 2021 @ 18:30 - 20:00

Happy New Year to all our AWS members. We all hope for a more ‘normal’ 2021 and hope to see you in person soon!

To start off the year we are holding our first zoom talk on 26 January 2021 at 6.30pm by two distinguished legal professionals, talking about their career changes from barrister to solicitor and vice versa : why they did it, how they achieved it, and was it worthwhile –

Jacqueline Major, a Partner and Head of Family Law at Hodge Jones & Allen ( https://www.hja.net/legal-team/jacqueline-major/ ) who qualified as a barrister before training as a solicitor; and,

Ann Crighton of Crighton Chambers who specialises in motoring offences ( https://crightonchambers.co.uk/about/ ) who did the reverse, training to be a solicitor before qualifying as a barrister;

Jacqueline and Ann will discuss their fascinating careers, as both are qualified solicitors and barristers. Ann was featured in our last newsletters. This will be followed by a Q&A session.

The cost for members is £10, for associate members is £5 for non-members £15
