US Firms in the City Panel

  • King's College London Great Hall, Strand Campus London, WC2R 2LS United Kingdom (map)

High salaries, small intakes, long hours... What other things come to mind when you think 'US firm'?

The KCL Law Society invites you to one of our most popular events of the year: the US Firms in the City Panel, aimed at making you stop and think. Ever wondered what life is like beyond the Magic Circle? How different is US firm culture and practice? This event aims to answers these questions, and provide a candid insight into life at American firms.

Joining us for the night, we are delighted to have lawyers from five top firms from across the pond:

• Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton
• Weil, Gotshal & Manges
• Sidley Austin
• Kirkland & Ellis
• Latham & Watkins

The evening will begin with a moderated discussion, followed by an open-floor questions-and-answer session, and end with a drinks reception.

Topic 1: Culture, Training and Myths of US Firms in the City.
Topic 2: The Future Strategy of US Firms in London
