Upcoming Summer Success programs

The D’Angelo Law Library is sponsoring two upcoming programs to help prepare students for their summer internships.

Ensuring Summer Success, Tuesday, May 6, 12:25 – 1:30 pm in Room V

Join the Office of the Dean of Students, the Office of Career Services, and the D’Angelo Law Library for a program designed to get you ready to succeed this summer. Our panelists will include a partner from Sidley, an associate from Pattishall McAuliffe, an administrative assistant from Jenner, and a reference librarian from DLA Piper. 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 in previous years by students who had attended the program in preparation for their summer positions. Lunch is provided. Keystone points: 10.

Prepare to Practice Boot Camp, Friday, May 9, 3:30 – 5:30 pm in Room IV

Join the D’Angelo Law Library and representatives from Lexis and Westlaw for a boot camp to help you be an efficient and effective legal researcher this summer. We will cover a variety of legal research tools, strategies, and best practices to give you the legal research skills that law firms are looking for from new associates. RSVP (to tito@uchicago.edu) is encouraged, but not required. Keystone points: 25.
