Clients will always come to you with something out of syllabus. That’s why the idea of training lawyers involve teaching them how to think like a lawyer.
You need to deal with questions that you have never thought of before and develop the skill to find the right answer or come up with arguments in unexpected situations.
There are two ways we do this in lawsikho courses.
First, we give you two exercises every week that require you to solve a real-life problem. However, every month, one exercise is to write an article on a topic that we give to you.
This topic is not something you can read from the study material and reproduce. You have to go and do your own research. You have to learn to frame issues. You need to learn how to find answers to legal questions you have not encountered before by reading up relevant law, synthesizing different arguments which are often conflicting in nature and learn to present everything in a way that is persuading.
To enable this, we have extra classes from time to time, training our students on how to write, how to publish and even how to use these articles to strengthen your network. They also get personal feedback on what they write and get to improve their writing skills.
How would it be if you could write an article and publish every month, starting in April? Would that improve your CV? Could that help you to land new clients or impress future recruiters?
Could it help you to become a thought leader in your chosen field of law?
We also emphasize on publishing these articles our students write. Most publish on iPleaders blog.
