Aurore demonstrating TaskHub to Boris Johnson

Lucy Sherwood (Professional Legal Skills 2010) launched the brand-new CPD website, LawPod, with her co-founder Rob Bayne last month. Currently focused on Family Law, the site offers podcasts from a variety of family law practitioners but will be branching into other areas in the coming months.

Aurore Hochard (Graduate Entry LLB 2012) presented her new startup, TaskHub, to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson in June. The Mayor had come to officially open the Wayra Academy in London. Aurore and her partner Rahul Ahuja were one of 16 companies selected (from 1031 entrants) to join the Wayra UK Academy at the end of May. Wayra described as ‘the technology accelerator of O2’s parent company Telefonica’ by TheNextWeb will give the 16 selected teams office space and a fantastic support network of coaches, mentors and of course, technology for at least six-month period.
