    How Sky Sports Insight Day helped to explain what it takes to be a lawyer

    On the 1st August 2014, Sky Sports held one of the most innovative, inspiring and rewarding projects I have been fortunate enough to be involved with during my 16 years working in the legal profession. Sky Sports invited 40 young people between 16-22-years-of-age to take part in a Sky Sports Legal “Insight Day”.
