  • persevering in the early and difficult stages of a legal career,
  • tips on improving expertise and competence,
  • to keep on learning and become high-level legal talents capable of handling complex cross-border legal issues.


Furthermore, Mr. Ran also shed light on how to acquire transferable skills in the workplace, for instance;


  • improving self-discipline and time- management skills,
  • being a team player,
  • honing communication skills,
  • developing business acumen so that the legal solutions to the clients could serve their core commercial interests,
  • and winning the trust from clients.

The participants were all active in raising questions and engaging in discussions, creating a lively atmosphere for the visit.
