As part of its commitment to fostering the retention and promotion of diverse lawyers, PDLG has created an annual program, The Art of the Pitch, for diverse junior partners and senior associates at PDLG member law firms.
The goal of the program is to help those lawyers develop or polish their client pitching skills, which is an essential part of the practice of law. A panel of senior in-house lawyers and law firm rain-makers speak about the preparation, styles and techniques needed to give an effective business pitch.
Attendees are then invited to create a firm team and do a simulated business pitch to representatives of one of the PDLG corporate law department members. Those to whom the pitch is made then give feedback and advice to the law firm team.
