GlaxoSmithKline - I&D Careers Afternoon 2013

Insight into the life of an in-house lawyer (solicitors, trade mark attorneys & patent attorneys)

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is hosting a careers afternoon at our headquarters in Brentford, Middlesex, on Wednesday 17 April 2013  (approx 2.30 – 5.00 pm).   

The afternoon is intended to provide 2nd or 3rd year law and science students with the opportunity to:


  • Hear presentations by in-house lawyers from various legal functions within GSK (solicitors, trade mark attorneys, patent attorneys)
  • Learn about the sort of work we do in-house and our career paths
  • Take a tour of the Brentford site
  • Learn more about GSK generally
  • Meet and ask questions of our lawyers in an informal environment – a “networking session”.


We hope that  this afternoon will give students a brief but real insight into life as an in-house lawyer.

The event is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline's Legal Department Diversity & Inclusion group. Acceptance onto this event will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Students are expected to fund their own travel to and from the event.  Students wishing to attend should contact Vivien Hodges at

GlaxoSmithKline's headquarters address is 980 Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8 9GS. We are a 7 minute walk from Brentford overland train station and a 15 minute walk from Boston Manor underground station (Piccadilly Line).
