Commercial Awareness Society - Manchester

The Commercial Awareness Society will provide a platform on which students can discuss current affairs, and how they relate to the legal industry.

From the patently obvious ‘what has been in the news this week that interests you?’, to the subtler ‘who is the most powerful person, and why?’, future trainee solicitors will be required at every stage of an application for a Training Contract, to demonstrate their commercial awareness skills. In an increasingly competitive world, it is vital that future solicitors are able to understand the risks and opportunities that face their clients from both a legal and commercial perspective, in order to give their clients, the very best advice.

The Commercial Awareness Society will provide a platform on which students can discuss current affairs, and how they relate to the legal industry. The sessions welcome everyone; discussions will be tailored to our members’ needs, and will include deliberations on how the news effects a magic circle law firm, all the way to the local law firm, all the way to the client. The society will not only look at the challenges that face a firm’s clients, but will also look at the challenges faced by a law firm operating as a business in and of itself.

The sessions also offer members the opportunity to further develop their professional skillset. Members will have the opportunity to both chair and scribe sessions, but of course you are under no obligation to do so if you do not want to!

The Commercial Awareness society hopes to aid those that are seeking Training Contracts, through drawing upon the knowledge and experience of one another’s understanding of the term ‘commercial awareness’.
