Announcing a New Virtual Experience Program

Forage’s virtual programs help law students gain real-world experience.

April 27, 2020

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

When this program was launched our partner was known as InsideSherpa, they have since changed their name to Forage. This announcement has been updated to reflect the current name.
