How it Works
LWOW X is an all-virtual program with three components aimed at teaming students and professionals from around the globe to innovate solutions to problems in legal education and practice. The experience is comprised of three components:
1. THE KICKOFF
LWOW X begins with the KickOff, where our students and mentors gather online in real time for intensive idea generation, teaming, personality assessments, and skill building. Together, we set the stage and construct the foundation for the research, innovation, and communication the teams will be doing over the following three months.

2. VIRTUAL TEAMING
Following the KickOff, we move to the Virtual Teaming phase. First, our entire community meets for mandatory weekly sessions, called LWOW Live. LWOW Live sessions are much more than a class or webinar. These are substantive exchanges of ideas and lively debates over hot topics in legal and education and practice, led by renown and experienced Thought Leaders. LWOW Live sessions feature real-time video, voice, chat, and presentations and are also offered for CLE credit in some jurisdictions.
Simultaneously, students and their mentors are also building their innovations—called Projects of Worth. Students meet weekly with mentors, experts, and each other to research their topic, identify a narrow problem, and develop a solution to the problem identified. They engage in cross-cultural communication, project management, marketing, financial analysis, and critical thinking. Throughout the process, students also have several checkpoint meetings with the LWOW Team.
3. THE CONPOSIUM
The LWOW X process culminates with the ConPosium, where the entire community gathers online once again. Student teams present their Projects of Worth to a multidisciplinary panel of judges, including an academic, entrepreneur, and venture capitalists. The judges select winners for the most substantive, most viable, most creative, and an overall winning project.
