UTS Faculty of Law Forum: 'Surviving the Downturn: Planning for the Recovery'
The effects of the global financial crisis have been keenly felt by law firms and other professions. UTS: Law is aware of the impact on employment opportunities for our graduates but, more immediately, the faculty is concerned for our stakeholders. In response, we are hosting a breakfast forum to discuss the topic, ‘Surviving the Downturn: Planning for Recovery.’ The forum will feature a panel of experts including Professor Jim Bright, a Partner of Bright and Associates; Cindy Carpenter, Executive Director of Human Resources and Marketing at Corrs Chambers Westgarth; and Chris Merritt, Legal Affairs Editor of The Australian.
Breakfast will be served at 7:30am for a 8:00am forum start.
The forum will be followed by a Q&A session.
