qLegal looks to the future with its new Advisory Board
qLegal's new advisory board brings together leading figures from the worlds of law, tech, innovation and enterprise and will focus future development.
20 November 2019
qLegal has been running an entrepreneurship law clinic for more than 5 years and we were delighted to gain recognition for our work through the LawWorks & Attorney General’s Best Contribution by a Law School award. However, our focus is very much on the next 5 years and beyond, particularly in light of changing legal practice and the future of work. We have established an Advisory Board of leading figures from the worlds of law, tech, innovation and enterprise to help guide us in the next phase of qLegal’s development. The Advisory Board will help ensure qLegal continues to provide up-to-the minute programmes that benefit our students, clients and external partners.
Our handpicked wish list of Advisory Board members was compiled on the basis of each individual’s expertise and experience, plus their interests and talents beyond the day job. We were delighted that, despite having very busy lives, each of the Board members accepted our invitation and will be kindly giving up their time to support qLegal.
qLegal’s Advisory Board members are:
- Ahmed Badr General Counsel at GoCardless
- Hemi Bhatti Senior Policy Advisor at the Department for International Trade
- Alex Chandran Commercial Manager at the Open Data Institute
- Simon Collin Founder and CEO of SightMill
- Kate Gaskell Director of Practice Area Strategy (LexisPSL) at LexisNexis
- Abigail Hunt Associate Director at Deloitte, focusing on Innovation
- David Shanks Senior Corporate Counsel at Google
