TANQ Seminar - Commercial Awareness for Lawyers
Date:
Tuesday 21 March 2017
Time:
06:00pm - 07:00pm
Speaker:
Iain Sim and Andrew Todd
Seminar Details:

What is commercial awareness and how do you show you have it – or can develop it? Authors Andrew Todd and Iain Sim argue that commercial awareness has three meaning:

   • It’s about who you are – and knowing you’re a lawyer with professional standards.

   • It’s about what you do – and not just giving legal advice but running a business.

   • It’s about what your clients want – and understanding what they need from you.

This seminar will consider how trainees and new lawyers can develop their commercial awareness. It will consider the current legal market and the knowledge and skills such as project management that you’ll need over the next five years so that you can show that you too are commercial aware.

Andrew Todd is General Counsel to Springfield Properties plc, one of Scotland largest independent housebuilders. He’s also a former senior tutor of Commercial Awareness at the University of Glasgow and the current senior tutor for Conveyancing. Along with Iain he’s written “Commercial Awareness for Lawyers”.

Iain Sim is a qualified solicitor. He is a visiting lecturer at both the University of Strathclyde and Strathclyde Business School, where he co-ordinates and delivers commercial and business courses at undergraduate, masters (including DLP) and MBA level both in the UK and Dubai. He also delivers executive education programmes for large SMEs and blue chip PLCs.
