The SCILL Commission is hosting during the Commissions Month a set of four sessions where skills, career, innovation, leadership and learning are combined. To  create a high quality programme and deliver the best content, SCILL will team up with excellent coaches, several AIJA Commissions and the European Legal Tech Association (ELTA).

Skills - Online speaking session

This session will focus on how to be at one’s best in an online environment. This includes information on optimal presentation as well as tips on how best use the lighting, dress-up and much more.

CAREER - Business Development

Through this session you will gain a deep understanding of what business development really means for lawyers, dispel some myths, overcome limiting beliefs and identify the one perfect strategy for you as a unique individual.

INNOVATION - Legal Tech Development

This session will give the participants of the Commissions Month the opportunity to share their personal experience in developing legal tech tools, insights on the digitalisation of the law and much more. The session will be co-organised with the ELTA. 

LEADERSHIP & LEARNING - Movie night session “Up in the air”  - challenges of working in crisis scenarios

Collective redundancies, bankruptcies, insolvencies – how to face moral restraints, burn-outs and other risks for lawyers. In post Covid times, restructurings will probably constitute a relevant market for lawyers. This will, however, imply in certain situations having to advise clients on decisions which may imply severe consequences for other people. A discussion between lawyers and other professionals.

Homework for attendees: Please do watch the movie Up in the air in the next weeks.

 

Close the day by exchanging your personal experiences regarding challenges in your working life as a result of COVID-19 or regarding the development of legal tech.Share ideas and solutions that worked for you, inspire others and also get inspired by what others share.
