Meet Gail Cutter, the Director of Employer Relations and Student Recruiting, to learn about expectations that global law firms have for 1L students, both in terms of networking and "commercial intelligence"-- an understanding of the business of law firms, the needs of corporate clients and different practice areas. During this informal workshop, Ms. Cutter will share her experience from 20+ years on the law firm, legal recruiting and law school sides. How can you introduce yourself effectively? What research is recommended for networking events and informational interviews? How can you use your research to engage in productive conversations? What should you say if you are unsure of your interests and plans? These, and many more, questions will be answered in the course of this informal workshop.
