An annual favorite for law students: Practicing lawyers, profs, and judges will join each table of law students to share, ask questions, and give advice by practice or geographic area
Students are free to engage the workshop topics offered throughout the conference. This year, we have designed the Career Options panel and Scholars’ Symposium workshops specifically with students in mind. We’ll have more recommendations on site, but browse the brochure to get a flavor for the great offerings on women in the law, immigration issues, international justice, and religious liberty topics that may be of interest.
