Over 100 trainees and future trainees from Birmingham joined the BTSS for a webinar to address concerns around training remotely and qualifying during a possible recession.

The webinar, chaired by trainee solicitor Amelia Bauer, consisted of four speakers: Angharad Warren, BCL Legal; Samantha Holland, Gowling WLG; Jen Cabrera, Shoosmiths; and Lisa Whitehouse who spoke on behalf of Anthony Collins Solicitors. Each speaker gave their perspective on the challenges of training and qualifying during the pandemic, and gave trainees some useful tools to make the most of their training period.
