Legal Aspects of a Career in Futures

"Technology is at the heart of our business, particularly in these electronic days, so having a lawyer who can do financial services and technology without going white and feeling sick makes a lot of sense."

In 2008, Adrienne Seaman was looking for a change, for fear of getting "bored" in her job as a partner in a London law firm. As a lawyer with a degree in computer science, she was particularly well suited to join CME Group as it began its expansion in Europe. Two weeks after she joined, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, and the wheels of regulatory change were set in motion for the entire financial market. Today she has no worries about being bored.

Seaman asks, "who in the business will be worrying about law and regulation?" The answer, of course, is everyone. In this MarketsWiki Education talk, she offers tips not only for the would-be lawyers in the room, but also the 95 percent of people in the room who will not be lawyers, but will invariably need to deal with lawyers and legal issues throughout their professional careers.
