The Latest Episode of
Lessons I Learned in Law

In this episode of Lessons I Learned in Law Scott Brown speaks to Jamie Pearson who is General Counsel at Genomics PLC and Sarah Marshall, VP & Head of Legal International & Japan, Alexion (AZ Rare Disease).

Jamie and Sarah met whilst working for a company that meant they shared a considerable commute! Now, together they run the High Five Project to support lawyers entering the life sciences sector, as well as in-house lawyers more broadly.

Sarah and Jamie share the lessons they’ve learned in law including:

  • You should have ownership and agency over your career path.
  • A change of role or environment can re-energise you – find an organisation with a culture in which you can thrive.

Sarah, Jamie and Scott share their perspectives on the differences between in-house roles compared to working for law firms, and how you can potentially make the transition between the two or between different sectors.
