What’s on Your Desk? Fall 2020 2L Networking and Learning Series
We created this series to connect law firms and 2Ls in a substantive and engaging virtual setting. The goals are to allow students to learn more about the day to day work in a range of practice areas, while also enabling them to get to know more about your firm and to meet members of the firm. Sessions will be scheduled in October and November 2020. Learn more here.
