OUR PHILOSOPHY

Legal Commercial Awareness cannot be learned JUST by reading a news article or summarising it.


At FCL we help students develop true Legal Commercial Awareness by learning how to apply it to a given set of facts, identify the legal and commercial risks and then provide advice to a fictional client as to the best way to mitigate those legal and commercial risks.

This is what commercial lawyers do – and FCL believes that the best training for Legal Commercial Awareness can only come from a fully qualified commercial lawyer with years of experience.


Why settle for less?

The unique method of teaching Legal Commercial Awareness will assist students in differentiating themselves in the application process and assessment centers - and in interviews with commercial partners of law firms.
