Beyond Eagle Street Drinks

The Justice and the Law Society (JATL) is delighted to present their premier networking event: "Beyond Eagle Street Drinks".

JATL recognises that top-tier firms play a vital role in the legal profession. While Eagle Street firms tend to have an abundance of available information about career opportunities, JATL has noticed a void of information about the career opportunities beyond “Eagle Street”. Many law students remain unaware of the different avenues that can be taken after completion of their law degree.
