Ms Southgate details the need for such symbiosis, the history of such collaboration, how the age of coronavirus taught the profession new ways of working together on legal education, the importance of proactivity in communicating educational needs, and how best providers can meaningfully create substantive educational programs.

She also reflects on the partnerships that Leo Cussen has and how these have been successful, the lessons to be gleaned from 50 years in operation, looming challenges on the horizon, ways to take advantage of market opportunities, new offerings that Leo Cussen currently has, and why such offerings are so enticing as we move forward in the new year.
