I love it. That it’s awesome is an understatement.

Law Student

I like that it gives both the bird’s eye view—WHY do we have term sheets, WHY do we do due diligence—as well as nitty gritty details—here are specific pointers for drafting a working group list, here are key terms to check on a term sheet, etc.

[When I first saw Hotshot] I thought OK, this is potentially going to be a little bit corny, but I was really blown away by how much it felt authentic—it felt like an attorney sitting there helping you do something, helping you review a document. Students have had the same reaction.

Honestly, stuff like the M&A Basics videos would have been PHENOMENAL to have available when I first started out practicing at a firm. They cover everything on such a basic level and hit all of the random little points that no one ever actually sits down and explains to you. Those so often hamstring your bigger-picture understanding of deals until you either figure it out with context clues or work up the nerve to ask a more senior associate you hope won’t think you’re an idiot.

Excellent program. It reminds me of an advanced, well-run, Khan academy.

I think Hotshot is great. The information is easy to digest, the platform is user-friendly and easy to navigate, and the use of various mode options (video, charts, quizzes, outlines) is extremely helpful.

Law Graduate

Hotshot videos are brief—perfect for people with a lot going on. The seven-minute program on motions to dismiss is interesting and makes all the right points. We do not have to create that foundational material from scratch…we found that if we used the Hotshot materials we could customize it for our firm in no time at all

I really like the bite-sized videos and appreciate the high-quality materials.

Shearman & Sterling

Great interface, clear and easy to follow! I especially like the visual examples (i.e., chart, and then handwritten pen explains further changes to the example, visuals in real time change the number variables), and that a written outline is available. I either watched the videos first with the closed caption on then read the outline, or flipped this order; it's useful to access the content in multiple ways. I’m excited too that there’s an intro to the financial industry (i.e., banking, hedge funds).

Associate

I have enjoyed the ability to learn about new topics that are of interest to me. As a rising 2L I like accessing topics that I have not yet been introduced to in law school.

Summer Associate

Hotshot is pretty amazing and precise, to the point. That’s definitely a help in learning efficiently and gives us a good introduction about the topic.

Great snippets of information needed at fingertips. As the content expands, like the recently added Commercial Provisions, Hotshot has become more relevant for my area. Thanks much. Keep them coming!

I personally love it. I took a look at some of the Accounting and Finance sections over the summer when I stumbled across things I didn’t understand, and now I’m very excited about the Civil Litigation aspect!

Overall, these videos and quizzes are great, learning a lot already.

Associate
Gunderson Dettmer

I thought the modules were very digestible and provided excellent foundations that would be effective pre-work for trainings, as well as the “just in time” component that is discussed on the website. The outlines are great for being able to refer back to certain items later without re-watching things again (time = money).

I really like that the videos don’t presume a lot of background knowledge on the subjects, which is helpful because law school doesn't address a lot of these topics.
