Receptions for First Year Students

2013 Receptions for First Year Students

**See more details and sign up through the Westlaw TWEN course “2013 Receptions for First Year Students”. Sign ups available beginning Jan. 21.

Each year, private firms, government employers and non-profit law offices hold receptions for Lewis & Clark first year law students. These receptions provide you with a unique opportunity to visit different law offices, meet practicing attorneys (many of whom are alums of the law school) and learn about different areas of the law and different types of practice settings. Most receptions are 1-1.5 hours and include a tour of the office and an opportunity to talk informally with attorneys after a brief presentation. Many of these employers (especially the larger firms) offer this as an opportunity to find out about their office and their practice areas - information that can be very helpful if you decide to apply to them as a 2L student.

You may attend as many of the receptions as you wish; however, there will be multiple receptions on each date and you may only attend one reception on each date. We recommend that you sign up for several receptions and that you sign up for a variety of employer types/sizes so that you can compare/contrast.



  • Register for the “2013 Receptions for First Year Law Students” course through the Westlaw TWEN website.
  • Once you are registered, review the list of participating employers.
  • Beginning Jan. 21, sign up for the receptions that you want to attend (remember, you can only sign up for one reception on each date). Sign up for each reception is on a first come/first serve basis.
