Event description

Description

Are you unsure of where your ANU law degree can take you? Want to hear real advice from experienced professionals in the field?

The ANU Law: Your Global Passport is a new student lunch series that welcomes alumni back to the law school to share career experiences and advice with current law students.

Featuring alumnus David Olsson (LLB ’79), China Practice Consultant at King & Wood Mallesons – a global law firm headquartered in Asia.

Key takeaways:

  • The legal profession will be radically different in ten years. Changing client needs, technology and the influence of Asia will alter the nature of jobs and skills required in the future. David will share his thoughts and experiences on the changing dynamics of the legal profession and the new skills needed for the future.

David Olsson is a former Managing Partner of King & Wood Mallesons with 30 years’ experience as a specialist in the areas of cross-border investments, capital markets and corporate finance. He has worked in many offices of the firm in Australia and Asia, as well as in London and the Middle East. He was senior partner of the firm based in Beijing for nearly 6 years from 2008 to 2013 and now consults to the firm and its clients.

He has significant experience in the management of a global law firm, gaining unique insights from leading and managing the integration of the Australian and Chinese offices of the firm following its combination in 2012. He is on the boards of several companies and leads a number of industry-wide initiatives around China and Asian engagement strategies.
