“COVID-19 is a unique crisis whose legacy will outlive its cure.” COVID-19 has significantly impacted the economy, business landscape and paradigms, including the legal industry, and our way of life. It has accelerated transformation and innovation as crises are known to do. As we look to the future of the legal industry, how will you pivot to lay a foundation for you to thrive (e.g., work in different markets, practice at traditional and/or non-traditional law firms, explore new and emerging areas of law, work differently, upskill, continued education, certifications, business acumen)?”

Applicants will receive a link to upload their 90-second videos once they submit the electronic application.

First-round interviews will take place via video conference in January 2022.
