Herbert Smith Freehills and Debut host ‘Tech for Good’ event for law students


The opportunity

Herbert Smith Freehills wanted to put their brand in front of students and graduates with an interest in law and provide a better understanding of the career opportunities within the company.

On behalf of Herbert Smith Freehills, Debut hosted an event for 85 Debut users with presentations by the company, a debate where students were split into groups to discuss chosen topics and networking opportunities.

The 85 attendees were either studying law or had an interest in law and were on track for obtaining a first or 2:1 in their subject area. The event attracted a diverse talent pool from 37 different universities, where 55% were from a BAME background, 48% were female and 25% were the first in their family to attend university.
