Alumni Supper – Commercial Law
This semester we are re-launching the School of Law Alumni Supper series:
At each event we will welcome back a small selection of successful alumni, from broad areas of practise such as commercial or criminal law, and invite them to speak to you about ‘life after Leeds’, their career path to date, and their current roles.
Each former student will speak for approximately 10 minutes before the floor is then opened to questions. Following the structured start to the evenings, all guests, including current students, alumni and staff will then be invited to chat informally and network over drinks and light finger food.
There will also be an opportunity at each event for a group of pre-notified students to attend dinner with our alumni visitors and staff representatives after the session (details to be found on the registration forms).
1 November – Commercial Law
On 1 November we will welcome back to the School John Flathers – Head of Real Estate at Irwin Mitchell, and Ruth Bamforth – Director of Pensions at Walker Morris. John and Ruth are both looking forward to returning to the School and to have the opportunity to meet and talk with you our current students.
John heads up the Real Estate team in our Leeds office. He has considerable experience in all real estate transactions, but has a particular focus on development work, property finance and corporate occupiers.
He also acts on investment transactions, for insolvency practitioners on property related matters, and for strategic land acquirers.
Ruth joined Walker Morris in 2015 having previously practised in the City for many years. Ruth has considerable experience advising both employers and trustees on a wide range of pension matters including scheme re-organisations, amendments and winding-up. She also has considerable experience advising on the pensions aspects (including international pensions aspects) of banking and corporate transactions.
