The programme is open to everyone but aimed at students at school or in their first year of university. You will gain both technical and soft skills which are essential to a career in commercial law as well as a deeper understanding of two key practice areas: Energy and Infrastructure (E&I), and Intellectual Property, Media and Technology (IPMT). E&I tasks include pitching to a hypothetical multinational client, reviewing a draft loan agreement, and executing a document. For IPMT tasks, Hogan Lovells is partnering with and showcasing a real client, Vodafone. In a hypothetical scenario, students will advise Vodafone on potential grounds for making a trademark infringement claim and explain trademark registrations to Vodafone’s in-house counsel.
This is a virtual experience opportunity
When you complete the First Steps to Law Virtual Experience Programme, you’ll earn a personalised completion certificate to share with prospective employers and your professional network.
