Capital Ideas: campus of the future

Back To Latest News
Our relationship to space has dramatically changed over the past 12 months, as the pandemic has forced us to do pretty much everything from home. For institutions like universities and colleges, which are so often defined as “places” of education, what does that actually mean? In this episode, our host, Sue Wardle is joined by three lawyers with complementary sector expertise: Trish D’Souza, who leads our education team, Leanne O’Brien, who leads our real estate division, and Chris Coughlan, from our tech team.

Please note, our discussion and the information given by our lawyers do not constitute legal advice. Advice subject to change.
