Boot Camp to Train New Lawyers and Law Students
Now more than ever, law students and new attorneys need to learn the essential skills and make the right decisions to both stand out from others as well as achieve success. Both new lawyers and those about to join the profession need to figure out what area of law to pursue, how to stand out and how to network. Of course, that’s much easier said than done. That’s where the Young Lawyers Division comes in.
The YLD is presenting Young Lawyer Bootcamp: Tactics, Tips and Tricks for Law Students and New Lawyers on Friday, February 19, 2010, from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (Wannamaker Building, 100 Penn Square East, Suite 1010). This program is sponsored by KLA Marketing Associates. There will be multiple sessions including “Choosing a Career Path,” “Advice from the Bench,” “Get the Most out of Your First Job” and “Considerations Before Starting Your Own Practice.” These sessions will feature judges and distinguished attorneys from diverse practices as panelists and moderators.
After the event, there’s a networking happy hour open to all attendees at Tavern on Broad, 200 South Broad Street, which includes 1 drink ticket and some hors d’oeuvres. The cost is just $10, which includes lunch and admission to the networking event (so you’ve already gotten the value of at least the food and drink even if you don’t learn anything else). Register and learn valuable advice that I wish I knew when I was just starting out.
