All news


INTEGRITES announces admission for the third annual i-Talents course. It will take place on September 11-12, 2020 as an intellectual battle: teams of participants will compete for the first client. The winner will be the team that better justifies and presents a commercial offer and successfully solves a real case for a potential client.

3rd-6th year law students from the Ukrainian universities are invited to apply. Based on the results of the assessment by the expert commission, the best students will become eligible for an internship and further employment at INTEGRITES.

Participants will learn:

  • How to choose a focus in law studies
  • How to get new clients and sell legal services
  • How to make a commercial offer stand out from the others
  • How a law firm really works
  • What soft and hard skills lawyers need

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. More information about the course –

*The Magic circle is an informal term to identify five of the UK’s most prestigious and most profitable law firms: Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Linklaters and Slaughter and May.
