"It was immensely interesting, thought-provoking and inspirational. I never considered being a lawyer could be as creative and entrepreneurial. I have recommended my company to continue participating in this programme so that each young lawyer in our Group could be energized and inspired by this wonderful program."

Community + Thought Leadership

"LawWithoutWalls is an opportunity for lawyers to have direct access to and interact with the world of law, its academic and professional leaders (and pioneers) and students from all countries and cultures. This enables the lawyers to gain insight on the law industry, foresee and adapt in light of any potential changes shaping the industry, learn from other members in the community on how to innovate and create new opportunities in the world of law, face and overcome challenges relating to the legal profession and succeed as a an entrepreneur and as lawyer."

"I’ve found it quite inspiring to be in such an environment listening and contributing to ideas on issues which impact us all—it’s helped act as a reminder to me about the importance of keeping a keen eye on the future of the legal industry as it’s so easy to focus solely on the unrelenting day-to-day activity we all have."

Student, Wharton

“The LawWithoutWalls experience is priceless. The challenges of perspective, language, and culture are a source of joy for me. I learned from this experience what it will take to motivate diverse teams, and organize them more effectively.”

Student, University College London

“I can honestly say that LawWithoutWalls has been the best experience I have had in law school.  I loved the ability to interact with a team of international attorneys and students in order to develop a real-world solution to a legal issue.  It has been the most hands-on, applicable experience I've had in law school.”

Student, Stanford

“Upon entering law school, it is easy to lose sight of your creativity, which once seemed so clear and inseparable from your identity.  LawWithoutWalls, for me, was the first time in my two years of legal scholarship that I finally felt like I could do more with my career than just joining a firm.  I will never forget LawWithoutWalls as it gave me the ability to recapture a part of myself that I had fear I had forgotten or lost.”

Student, University of Miami

“LawWithoutWalls has been the most personally fulfilling thing I have done in law school. Hands down.” 

Student, University of the Witswatersrand
