Thousands of lawyers graduate from law school every year
Less than 1% will ever make it to the top
Become one of them!
Whether you are hoping to make it big in a major law firm, in an International Organisation, the official ranks of your country or even in starting your own company, the competition and challenges faced by today’s young lawyers have never been tougher.
Comprehensive knowledge of the law, an impressive CV, international experience and a long list of extra-curricular activities have all become basic prerequisites for anyone planning to move up the ladder.
For the young lawyer of today, this means that all the legal excellence you have worked for and that fantastic CV you have built up, are simply not enough to set yourself apart from the fierce competition in the market.
Experienced lawyers and leaders will tell you that the most valuable skills of the 21st century, the skills that give you a real chance to stand out, lie outside the law. It’s what law school doesn’t teach you. It’s Leadership, Negotiation, Creative Thinking, Powerful Communication and Problem Solving.
The Future Legal Leaders Academy is a 5-day interactive training for law students and young lawyers
to fine-tune and develop the skills that will take you to the top
Module 1 – Great Speakers leap ahead: Public Speaking, Convincing Language and Confidence
You can be the brightest person in the room with the best ideas, but it’s all a waste if you don’t speak up or can’t communicate well, if you get nervous or don’t know how to present, pitch and convince. Whether in your job, in an interview, for your client or as a leader, confident communication is the key. Great speakers get ahead the fastest. In this module, we will show you how to convince and connect, speak with confidence and charisma and influence your audience. You will prepare talks and carry out challenging tasks, get constructive feedback and learn the art of engaging your audience.
Module Exercise: Prepare a small talk and compete for the Future Legal Leaders’ Best Speaker Award.
Lead Trainer: Claudia Winkler
Module 2 – Creating an Edge: Career Development and Profile Building
Lawyers need to bring more skills to the table than ever to perform well at their jobs, stand out as candidates and move to the next career opportunities. Whether for internships or for permanent placements, you need to gather the right qualifications, portray knowledge and skills, and show how you stand out over other applicants. This module will help you model your career path after the skills, talents and passions that define and drive you and build an impressive CV that stands out.
Module Exercise: Bring your CV along and we will do a live analysis of what is relevant and non-relevant to admission officers and international hiring professionals.
Lead Trainer: Heather Wallick
Module 3 – Pitching Ideas and Making a Difference: The road from entrepreneurship to leadership
Tomorrow’s leaders stand out by taking initiative, showing leadership and creativity, thinking entrepreneurial and driving change. These are skills you need to develop – and demonstrate – as a student or young practitioner. To fight for a mission or a cause, set up a student body, an NGO, a club or a movement, you need to know how to be a leader, how to inspire and motivate people, and how to form powerful networks and create influential connections. This module will show you how you can use your skills and passions to kick-start your own projects, to help you develop your skills, make a change, stand out from the crowd, and maybe even create a career out of your passion. It will also focus on the psychology of influencing people and ways to win their trust, form teams and have a vision.
Module Exercise: Design your own project in teams and present them to our panel in a pitching contest to win the Future Legal Leaders’ Best Entrepreneur Award.
Lead Trainers: Pratik Bakshi and Frank Fichtenmüller
Module 4 – How to Be a Go-Getter: Negotiating Your Way Through Life
In life you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. Negotiation skills are a decisive tool for professional success, client satisfaction and career advancement. In this module, you will learn how to use the Harvard Method of Negotiation to make better decisions, conclude mutually beneficial agreements, meet more of your interests (while meeting theirs too) and keeping a strong relationship with the other side. To practice, you will be negotiating role plays and cases, in class and by the beach, under the supervision of our trainers.
