We recently welcomed back Ed Jenneson (OH 1988-98) to talk to our Sixth Form law students. Ed is now a specialist employment law partner at Gunnercooke LLP. He left Hymers in 1998 and went on to Northumbria to study Law and gradually made his way to Partner at Rollits LLP, where he was for 20 years before moving to his current role in 2022. 

Ed shared some valuable insights in to Employment law and shared recent cases and examples of what his case load could involve. Our students enjoyed a question and answer session with Ed about the types of employment law and the variety of career options within law. He also shared his experience of recruiting law graduates, giving some valuable guidance and suggestions to help with their University choices and work experience for applications in future years. 

Thanks, Ed for joining us in your busy working week. It was a pleasure to have you and we really appreciate your time and contribution.
