Star Anise Legal will be hosting a live webinar with students from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Law Faculty. The webinar will share insights from legal industry leaders on what skills and attributes employers are looking for in job applicants and what considerations need to be taken into account when making job applications.

The talk, aimed at current HKU law undergraduate and postgraduate students, will be conducted online on 22 April 2020 (Wednesday) at 12:30 p.m. where seasoned professionals from the legal industry in Hong Kong will discuss what key skills employers want from their hires, and what skills, attributes and experiences can increase your chances of getting your dream job.
