The course includes a workshop on legal business development from the INTEGRITES expert – Senior partner Vyacheslav Korchev. Teams of practices in antitrust, corporate, tax, banking and finance law, as well as dispute resolution and international arbitration will conduct master classes for students. They will help the participants in the battle to better understand the potential client’s legal issue and find a way to resolve it.
Guest speaker – Kent Stone, Head of BD and Marketing at Linklaters law firm (UK) which belongs to the so-called Magic circle*. Kent Stone has 19 years of experience in marketing and business development in Europe, Australia and Asia and specializes in customer relationship management.
“Law departments in the Ukrainian universities provide students mainly with the theory of law. We decided to go another way and this year changed the format of i-Talents. It’s through gamification that participants will get practical knowledge applicable at their first workplace. We will also teach the basics of business development – this is an important skill for lawyers who plan to build their career in a law firm”, Oleksiy Feliv, Managing Partner at INTEGRITES, comments.
To participate in i-Talents, it is required to fill in the registration form via link by August 31, 2020 inclusive. Upon receiving a confirmation by email, registered users will be requested to send their CV and an essay in English to the organizers.
