We team 95+ students from 30 law and business schools around the world with mentors (academic, entrepreneur, and lawyer mentors). Over four months, student/mentor teams must identify a problem in legal education or practice and create a Project of Worth—a prototype and business plan for a legal start-up that solves the identified problem. This Project of Worth could include a business plan for a new startup or designs for new methods of arbitration enforcement. However, the Project of Worth is much more than a paper, presentation, or idea—it is a real solution to a real problem facing the legal marketplace.
More than just a conference.
Each course offering begins with a KickOff (in-person or virtual) that includes interactive exercises to foster idea generation, teaming, self-assessment, presentation, and communication skills. In hack-a-thon like style, teams create a real innovation over the course of two days.
We conclude at the ConPosium, an event (in-person or virtual) wherein teams present their Projects of Worth to a panel of multidisciplinary judges, including venture capitalists, who assess the substance, viability, and creativity, of the projects.
More than just a webinar.
Utilizing cutting-edge video technology, the LWOW Community meets together weekly to debate hot issues at the intersection of law, technology, and innovation. We call these LWOW Live sessions. These interactive exchanges are led by globally-recognized Thought Leaders (experts in their fields) and are available for CLE credit. Meanwhile, the teams meet virtually each week to investigate their topic, identify and solve a problem, and, ultimately, develop their Projects of Worth.
