The D’Angelo Law Library, along with the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Career Services, is sponsoring the program “Ensuring Summer Success” on Thursday, May 2 at 12:15 pm in Room V. The program is designed to get law students ready to succeed in their summer jobs.
The panelists will include a partner from Sidley, an associate from Paul Hastings, an administrative assistant from Jenner, and a reference librarian from Neal Gerber. The panelists will address issues such as: working successfully with non-attorney professionals; how to complete projects without racking up a six figure legal research bill; juggling multiple projects, summer associate activities, and still trying to have a life; and how to avoid the most common summer associate pitfalls that can keep you from receiving an offer for permanent employment. This program was very highly rated last year by rising 3Ls who had attended in preparation for their summer positions. Lunch is provided. Sponsored by Sidley Austin.
[This program qualifies for 10 Keystone Professionalism and Leadership Program points in the Managing & Building Your Career category.]
In the next few weeks, there will also be a number of vendor presentations focusing on cost-effective research and resources you will likely use during your summer jobs. All are scheduled during the lunch hour. Keystone points are available. For the Bloomberg Law presentations, RSVP at http://url.ie/hac1.
