WELCOME TO WARWICK CONGRESS
Warwick Congress is an entirely student run initiative that aims to bridge the gap between Finance, Economics, Politics and Law. Our goal is to unite these disciplines through talks and seminars given by leading academics and industry professionals in their relevant field.
Our main event of the year is our conference, to be held on 9th-11th February 2018. It will focus on innovation, centring around two subtopics: the way social media affects politics and policy, as well as the potential shift in global trade towards protectionism.
Previous Speakers include:
Sir Vince Cable
Current Leader of the Liberal Democrats
Current President of the European Law Institute and former Vice President of the European Parliament
Global Co-CEO of DLA Piper
Director of the Refugee Studies Centre at the University of Oxford
Meet the Professionals.
