In a world of social distancing, law firm Latham & Watkins launched a new self-directed virtual experience program last month geared toward giving those unfamiliar with the legal industry or life at a big law firm experience working on simulated legal tasks in the realm of emerging companies.

But while a program allowing participants to complete their virtual experience without ever setting foot inside the firm may seem pandemic-friendly, the initiative was developed without the COVID-19 crisis in mind. Instead, Latham seems more interested in expanding its name recognition among the next wave of legal talent.
