The Legal Pathfinder addresses law students who want to gain first legal consulting experience. Students participating in the Legal Pathfinder advise the founding teams of the 'Honours Degrees in Digital Technology and Entrepreneurship' with regards to legal matters concerning their founding ideas. Since the development of skills with respect to the communication with clients, the determination and assessment of relevant information etc. is mostly subject to the legal clerkship, the Legal Pathfinder provides law students with an early opportunity to gain experience in the craft of a lawyer.
The Legal Pathfinder aims at familiarizing law students with client interactions. Instructing a juridical layperson with legal knowledge is oftentimes difficult but constitutes a major key qualification for a future lawyer. By engaging in communication with the participants of the ‘Honours Degree’, law students will receive the opportunity to enhance their skillset and will get to know the complexity of advisory communication.
