IDIA CHAMPS Training and Smart Start 2016
IDIA aims to transform IDIA Scholars and volunteers into legal professionals who embody the attributes of CHAMPS (Creative, Holistic, Altruistic, Maverick/Moral and Problem Solvers). In pursuance of this vision, we organised a training with our Scholars and selected student volunteers that feature scholar training and development and brainstorming sessions for IDIA’s progress. The speakers included many industry leaders from diverse fields within the legal profession. In addition, leading international law firm Allen & Overy organised Smart Start experience for selected IDIA Scholars that included sessions on persuasive writing, presentation skills, networking, CV drafting, interview skills, and negotiation skills.
