LawWithoutWalls - Shaping the next generation of lawyers


Shaping the next generation of lawyers

“The legal sector needs to adapt. LawWithoutWalls is about developing a generation of lawyers that not only have great legal brains, but are commercial, innovative, digitally-savvy and global thinkers. 

It’s an amazing award-winning programme under which leaders from the world of business and academia mentor the next generation of legal and business students to make sure the students develop real world commercial skills.

In turn the students teach their mentors valuable lessons in using new technologies, in creativity and in the speed with which they develop their innovative new ideas. Our lawyers and clients benefit enormously from the process.”
