What do commercial lawyers really do?
The basics seem straightforward. The corporate team advises on buying and selling companies, the tax team advises on structuring taxes and the real estate team on property law. But how does this translate into the substantive work that lawyers in these teams undertake on a day-to-day basis?
Brought to you by several associates and trainees, this course will give you a detailed insight into the day-to-day work of lawyers across different practice areas. We cover core practice areas like corporate, private equity and tax, while also including a breakdown of more nuanced sub-groups like project finance, venture capital and pensions. Each lecture also includes information on how the work in these areas ties into broader commercial trends and client concerns.
This course aims to complement your existing knowledge on commercial law, which you can then use to:
- Develop compelling justifications for your interest in a specific practice area or firm
- Accurately describe the role of different teams in mock deals/case study scenarios
- Ask relevant and insightful questions during networking events
- Help you decide what areas of law you’d like to explore during vacation schemes or work experience placements
