BootCamp: Basic Training for Lawyers

Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 8:30 AM – 1:15 PM

This program provides recent law graduates and current law students with career planning information and skill-building. The sessions will focus on helping attendees assess their skills, the market, and get practice-ready. Whether you are seeking a job at a large law firm, government, or public interest organization, hanging out your own shingle, or not sure what your next step should be, this program will provide skills and information to help you achieve success. Even if you can only attend part of the day, these sessions were designed to help attendees in their job search. View the brochure.

  • Keynote — Discovering and Defining Your Professional Persona with Toni Jaeger-Fine
  • Job Search: Finding Your First Job in Uncertain Times with Brian Farkas and a panel of attorneys who faced their own job searches outside of "traditional" on-campus recruitment.
