The WLC is one of the few organizations that designs events specifically for the evening students. These Q&A sessions will provide an opportunity to talk with legal professionals about their personal stories in a small group.
Presentations are great, but the really good questions get asked after the PowerPoint is finished, crowded around the speaker at the front of the room. Designed specifically for the evening student, these Q&A sessions are an opportunity for a more intimate, conversational-style interaction with legal professionals. The speakers are diverse —one new to practice and one who has some years of experience—and they will answer everything you ask about how they made it through school, what happened in their first year in practice, balancing life demands, and the progress of their legal career.
Topics being considered range from striking out on your own right out of school, balancing work and family, and the unique challenges faced by second-career lawyers on getting on the partner track.
These sessions will be limited to ten pre-registered evening students plus the one or two guests, answering your questions on a narrow topic. The guests will not have a formal presentation and the hour will be exactly what the 12 participants make of it. Come prepared to ask not just a general question, but follow up questions; plan to engage in a deeper discussion than typical presentations allow.
Find out about what happens in the daily life of someone working in a job you would like. Investigate a specialty before you commit to a class on the topic, or what the demands are at different firms and in different roles. Possibly find a mentor that suits you perfectly.
