Small Firm Fair
The Center for Professional Development invites lawyers to attend the Sixth Annual Solo, Small and Mid-Size Firm Information, Networking and Career Fair from 5-7 p.m. March 6 at Campion Ballroom.

Despite budget cuts and challenges, there have been a number of positive changes for public defenders. The second annual conference on March 2, organized by Professor from Practice Bob Boruchowitz, brings together defenders, assigned counsel and others concerned about effective representation of clients.
The law school seeks alumni to volunteer for the 2012 Job Shadow Program, which runs March 5 - 9. This valuable program allows students to see opportunities available to them after law school. You decide how much time you can give. Past job shadow participants have invited students to witness client interviews, hosted tours of the courthouse, their company, or law firm and answered questions about their career path. Contact us to host a student.
