VU Faculty of Law student Emilija Valentinaitė has continued her journey in the international project Law Without Walls (LWOW) even in the face of a pandemic. Emilija with her team white & case 1 successfully remotely presented a solution to the legal problem during the annual LWOW event – ConPosium.
Emilija, please tell us about the legal problem your team had to handle.
My team’s theme was “How can law firms work with clients to identify and maximize the value of their relationships with external legal and professional advisors?” Although the topic does not seem complicated at first glance, we have faced a number of challenges in order to properly analyse it. Throughout the project, our main source of knowledge was interviews with professionals in various fields – both law firm partners or client relationship managers and law firm clients themselves. The insights from all of them were helpful, but it was clear that everyone sees different aspects of this problem that we had to refine in order to find the most effective solution.
Interesting! What memories from LWOW would you like to share with your fellow students?
LWOW provided an opportunity to meet and learn from renowned law firms and global companies, providing invaluable knowledge about innovative problem solving skills and the development of business ideas and start-ups. This experience can certainly be applied in practice, and the knowledge gained is necessary for every lawyer regardless of whether they just started practising or already have experience. In addition, participating in LWOW becomes an integral part of the LWOW network of project participants. Everyone who is reading I encourage filling in the application next year – we acquire the most necessary skills by applying our knowledge in practice while simultaneously acquiring new ones.
