Early prisers

Richards Butler is taking the hunt for its next rainmaking partner to the extreme. With the motto ‘get them early’ clearly its mantra, the firm recently held a seminar aimed at its clients’ children.

The ‘Do You Want To Be A Lawyer?’ lecture saw around 60 children between the ages of 14 and 18 listen to what it is like to really practise law, the qualifications they would need and what career options (ie wage slave) are open to them.

Wisely, the firm made it a day for the whole family by laying on entertainment for the parents at a type of bar not discussed at the seminar. Apparently, the whole thing went down so well that the firm plans on making it an annual event. The seminar – not the beer. Apparently that happens rather more regularly.
