Covington recently participated in Pure Potential’s legal event, PP:Law, which provided an introduction to the legal field to 150 first and second year undergraduates who are interested in a career in law. Pure Potential is an organization that promotes social mobility and provides guidance for students from low socio-economic backgrounds, who are either in the final years of secondary school or the early stages of their undergraduate degree. They facilitate a number of events and opportunities that aim to promote opportunity and mobility for successful careers in a variety of fields, including law.
Students were provided with the opportunity to network with a select number of law firms in the morning session and participated in a group panel discussion and negotiation exercise. After the morning session, a group of 19 students visited Covington’s London office and participated in a legal case study exercise. Associate, William Lowery, organized a Corporate IPO assignment. The students were given time to review the matter and analyze the key legislations and clauses. Associate, Antonio Michaelides, guided the students through the exercise, alongside a number of London trainee solicitors. Antonio commented: “I truly enjoyed participating in the event. I liaised with the students and helped them with the matter. They worked collectively and collaborated well as a team on a fairly difficult assignment. I thought it was an excellent opportunity for them to get practical legal work experience outside of their academic atmosphere. It gave them a true perspective on what we do in practice.”
