In Conversation with Dr Pippa Rogerson (1 March 2018)

Clifford Chance is delighted that our highly distinguished alumna, Dr Pippa Rogerson, will be joining us for our 'In Conversation' series at Clifford Chance.

Pippa is well known to the legal community and particularly to those who studied at Gonville & Caius College Cambridge, as a distinguished legal academic and Director of Studies. Before becoming an academic, Pippa qualified as a solicitor at Clifford Chance, where she is also remembered fondly. Pippa has now made history as the first woman Master of Gonville & Caius in its 669 years.

Pippa will discuss some themes which have emerged in her life to date as practitioner and an academic lawyer who has had to combine single-motherhood with success in the workplace. She will outline what has enabled her to create and seize opportunities for growth and overcome setbacks and offer some advice for those pursuing their careers as lawyers today.
