On March 6th, LSBU law students will be receiving expert preparation from Craig Sharpe of Darlingtons’ Solicitors, a firm committed to ensuring access to the legal profession
Craig Sharpe has had a career spanning 25 years working in law, partly as a lawyer and now a marketing specialist at Darlingtons Solicitors. This background gives Craig an unusual insight into the radical changes in legal practice and the challenges and pressures law firms face. The talk will be full of real world examples, anecdotes and humour – students will gain valuable and actionable insights.
