Akin Gump Launches LegalScoop.com as Information Portal for Law Students

(Washington, D.C.) – Akin Gump today announced the launch of LegalScoop.com, a new blog and information portal offering practical tips and advice to law students on a wide range of topics relevant to them as they navigate law school, learn about the legal market and build their careers.

Updated regularly throughout the year, Legal Scoop provides information on a wide range of topics such as “Finding the Right Law Firm Fit,” “Starting off on the Right Foot: Advice for Your Fall Semester from Junior Associates” and “Top Questions for Litigators, Transactional and Regulatory Lawyers.”

The site also provides links to additional resources law students may find helpful and features firsthand accounts from Akin Gump lawyers of their own experiences, as well as tips and strategies for law students to be successful in their studies and prepare for a career in law. Although Akin Gump hosts this innovative site, Legal Scoop provides general, rather than firm-specific, advice to its readers.

Akin Gump hiring partner David Botter said, “We are very excited to introduce LegalScoop to the law student community and to be able to provide information that will be useful to students wherever they may decide to pursue their careers. We understand from speaking with students that they have many questions about the industry as well as the recruitment and interviewing process, and our hope is that Legal Scoop becomes a regular stop for them as they gather the resources they need to be successful in school and make well-informed decisions regarding their careers.”
