In October 2019, we announced two Virtual Experience Programs (VEPs) with Forage1, an innovative, open-access platform that connects students with companies and law firms. Today, we are thrilled to announce a third VEP: Emerging Companies.
VEP participants complete an online training program, which allows them to receive feedback on simulated legal tasks and gain real-world experience. In addition to the opportunity to undertake legal work, participants will learn more about life at Latham.
Our Emerging Companies VEP gives participants the opportunity to advise a founder of a newly formed company on everything from optimizing the allocation of shares to terms sheets for a series A financing.
Our Mergers & Acquisitions VEP takes participants through a high-stakes transaction, from reviewing a nondisclosure agreement to offering urgent advice to shareholders.
Our White Collar Defense & Investigations VEP lets participants identify relevant documents using search terms, prepare for a witness interview, and perform other tasks related to a white collar criminal investigation.
Participants will enhance their skills, increase their employability, and develop tools to poise them for quick success. Click here to register.
Notes to Editors
