Legal Edge Learning Lab - From new lawyer to trusted business advisor

WHAT IS THE LEGAL EDGE LEARNING LAB?

The College of Law is partnering with Fullbridge, a Boston-based educational technology company, to offer training focused on the in-demand skills young lawyers need to accelerate their careers.

To gain the confidence to be trusted business advisors, new lawyers need to build the commercial and soft skills that experienced lawyers cite as key to their success—skills like collaboration, emotional intelligence, financial analysis, project management and time management.

This unique program focuses on key aspects of practice that will take new lawyers to the next crucial stage of their development and prepare them to contribute more actively to the success of their organisation.

PARTNERING WITH FULLBRIDGE

This innovative program has been developed jointly with Fullbridge and utilises their unique Learning Labs methodology.

Learning Labs are scenario-based, in-person, team learning experiences that promote agile thinking and idea flow. The program integrates cutting edge technology developed by MIT to provide objective feedback to individual participants on their performances in realistic learning scenarios.

With a focus on learning by doing, the labs are experiential, fast-paced, and designed to measure and improve the competencies linked to innovation and improved team performance.

PROGRAM CONTENT

The program covers the following areas, with an overlaid emphasis on teamwork and collaboration in the workplace. The most productive employees will be those who work collaboratively within the firm at all levels and who can deal effectively with clients, both existing and prospective. These are the lawyers who ‘make things happen.’
