ThinkHouse Foundations - Redefine your learning

ThinkHouse Foundations is Gowling WLG's tailored programme for in-house lawyers starting out in their careers. Drawing on the topics and insights focused on in ThinkHouse, we explore the opportunities and challenges faced by paralegals, trainees and lawyers of up to five years' PQE.

Providing an additional source of support and advice that lawyers don't always get when starting out in-house, the ThinkHouse Foundations programme is there to guide you in the early stages of your legal career. We aim to provide you with valuable knowledge and guidance together with practical tips that are relevant to your role.

The ThinkHouse Foundations programme will give you the opportunity to meet new contacts, exchange ideas and develop your network with legal professionals that are at the same stage of career as you. Led and developed by own up-and-coming lawyers, the agenda is informed by the challenges that you are likely to face both now and in future roles.
