CPPR’s Finishing School for Law

The programme aims to instil in freshly graduated law students the confidence and courage they need to start a new career. In its third installment, the Finishing School aims to polish students up on the finer points of social life which is just as important as the academic rigour they are put through in law school—from mastering the right handshake to speaking confidently in public.
