LWOW X begins with an all-virtual KickOff, held over three days. The KickOff is anything but a typical meeting or conference. Instead, it is a collaborative, skills intensive working session designed to challenge the way we think, the way we learn, and the way we communicate with each other. The KickOff features intensive idea generation, teambuilding, personality assessments, and other exercises that begin to break the barriers between professors and students, partners and associates, and lawyers and clients. We gather as a community to transcend cultural divides and embrace our global mission. We get to know each other and, in the process, get to know ourselves even more. Together, we innovate solutions, hackathon style, to hot problems in legal education and practice.
