Ultimate Law Guide’s mission

To be a valuable guide for students and lawyers in their training and professional development, career management and advancement.

 

Our Why

Ultimate Law Guide are passionate about providing smart resources and practical career strategies for young lawyers and law students during the critical junctures of a legal career, when it is so important to think ahead and carefully plan how to lead the way in your career.

 

Our own story as lawyers

Our mission is deeply rooted in our own career journeys. Our purpose is fuelled by our first-hand experiences as lawyers, when carving out successful legal careers proved anything but straightforward. Our story is one of triumph: having trained, qualified and practised at major law firms and global Fortune 50 companies. We achieved solid legal careers, but our careers would have greatly benefitted from having (1) better access to premium career know how, and (2) a support network of mentors, and a sponsor at senior level who is invested in your growth and development, advocates for you, and champions your ascent up the career path.

 

Forging a legal career is highly challenging, and it is an ultra-competitive market. Legal practice can be a rewarding and fulfilling career. We have recently and successfully walked the path law students are currently treading. Ultimate Law Guide truly relate to the challenges you face. We understand the common roadblocks often encountered in the career journey, as we have faced and overcome them ourselves.

 

We are motivated by your experiences

During our own career journey as lawyers, we witnessed many of our talented peers (and other new lawyers) lose their way, and feel compelled to walk away from their legal career. This is often due to a number of reasons, but largely centers around not having: (i) expert career advice, (ii) relevant work experience, (iii) allocation of the best work assignments, and (iv) sufficient understanding of what law firms expect and look for in their lawyers, and what it takes to demonstrate those fundamental competencies.

 

We really want to assist those coming up. We have a vested interest in the progress of the legal profession, and its future success depends on recognising and harnessing the widest possible range of talent.The profession is best served by a true meritocracy, which is built on the sincere and honest development of one's potential, and the opportunities to realise our full value professionally.

 

Hard earned, hard learned, valuable lessons

We are people helping people to navigate their career direction effectively. This is a personal labour of love where we communicate and share the valuable lessons learned. The knowledge we have acquired over the years, together with the distillation of our experiences are beneficial for students. We provide greater clarity of what it takes to plan and prepare for a top legal career, as we will guide you on how best to progress your career.

 

We empower students to self-invest and take ownership of your career. This will help to develop your emotional intelligence, strengths, mindset, perseverance, resilience, tenacity and the wherewithal required to negotiate the demands of a top legal career.

 

How we do it

 

We are in an "investment profession" where the wise counsel available to us in our career management is critical. Ultimate Law Guide provide professional training and performance development resources for your career management needs. We equip student lawyers to meet their learning and development needs, and enable their career advancement. Our guidance focuses on the overall approach you need to take and the important skills and information you need to develop, to properly lay the pathway to succeed.

 

We provide intelligent information from a highly sophisticated global legal services market, and translate that information into a language law students can learn and put into action rapidly. This is the ultimate competitive advantage. It helps students to positively demonstrate those qualities law firms look for in their recruitment and performance criteria of junior lawyers.

 

Training for lawyers, by lawyers. Over the past five years, we have made a positive difference to widening the horizons of thousands of law students. We give lawyers the tools and training to develop the skills law firms expect of their lawyers and bridge the expectation and reality gaps. Ultimate Law Guide help new lawyers to fully prepare for their career advancement at the commencement of your legal careers, by developing the necessary professional skills and working practices needed to forge a successful career trajectory and to serve clients and colleagues effectively.
