Legal Career Options Day

Legal Career Options Day is a two-part event. From 5:00 p.m. to 6:00, students will circulate through the Ballroom to meet and network with employers. Because our goal is to facilitate broad discussion about careers in the law, students will be discouraged from bringing resumes. At 6:00 a catered reception will begin, giving students and attorneys an opportunity to mingle over drinks and hors d'oeuvres in a less formal setting. While geared toward 1Ls (and all 1Ls are expected to attend), this event is open to all students. Dress is business attire. RSVP on Symplicity under the events/workshops tab by November 3rd.
