We know: finding that first job in the legal profession requires confidence and savvy that do not always come easily to students.
The Earle Mack School of Law gives you a host of opportunities to meet experienced practitioners in both formal and informal settings to help you get started in establishing a professional network.
We’ll pay for your membership in the American Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association, giving you access to terrific networking opportunities. Student organizations and the school host regular gatherings that help you break the ice with attorneys and judges, who are happy to tell you how they started their careers. Some classes include excursions to venues where you can pick the brains of practitioners. And we guarantee that you’ll get a solid foundation in networking and interviewing skills in your first year.
Our students have met leading attorneys at American Bar Association events and spoken with U.S. Supreme Court justices in Washington, D.C. They’ve attended conferences and blogged for the Philadelphia Bar Association and the nation’s oldest legal newspaper, The Legal Intelligencer.
The Career Strategies Office will help you define your professional goals, develop tactics for achieving them and connect you with resources for starting your career.
