The Career Services Backpack to Briefcase series is designed to teach law students about the fundamentals of practicing law - things you should know but won’t necessarily learn in law school.


In this second session, learn about how lawyers market themselves, to other attorneys and potential clients.  How can you build a particular practice area? What are some of the ethical considerations?


All years of students are welcome to attend! Feel free to bring your lunch.
