Law and Fintech Virtual Experience Programme

Why join this Virtual Experience Programme?

We are offering you the opportunity to experience the day-to-day work our lawyers do and use some of the skills our teams need when advising the world’s biggest businesses.

In this programme, adapted from real Freshfields work, our (fictitious) client wants to buy a crypto asset business. You will help them, working through five modules that cover a Freshfields junior lawyer’s typical responsibilities.

The Freshfields virtual experience is uniquely comprehensive, offering multiple perspectives of a single interesting matter from different practice teams that reflect our full-service offering.

What’s in it for you?

There’s no application process, no cost and you can complete the programme in your own time.

You’ll get a taste of a career in commercial law and experience what it’s like to work at a global law firm.

The programme will test and develop your analytical, research, communication, and drafting skills.

You’ll receive a certificate of completion from Freshfields in recognition of your work.

If you’re ready to experience the challenge of corporate law, join our programme today!

About Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is one of a handful of leading international law firms, with offices across the world.

Our clients are mainly big commercial businesses whose names are well-known. The type of work we do divides into helping clients achieve what they want through doing deals, advising them on real and potential problems, and helping them sort out their disputes. Our practice is very diverse, and constantly changing to meet our clients’ evolving needs.

Clients look to the firm to be able to answer any legal or regulatory questions that confront them. Organisationally, the firm’s lawyers work in one of eight departments: corporate; finance; dispute resolution; real estate; intellectual property/IT; tax; employment, pensions and benefits; and antitrust, competition and trade.

Whatever clients want to achieve, their lawyers’ job is to find out whether and how they can do it. Is it possible? What will be the most effective structure? What are the risks? How should it be documented?
