Private equity continues to dominate the business headlines, and as a law student you must be asking: What exactly is it like to be a lawyer serving private equity clients? We invite you to learn from current practitioners about the general structure of a private equity deal, the role that lawyers play in these transactions, and the skill sets to develop during law school to prepare for a successful career with this corporate focus. Panelists for the event include Daniel Evans, a partner in the New York and Boston offices of Ropes & Gray; Anne Croteau, a partner in the Raleigh office of Smith Anderson; Josh Liederman, an associate at Debevoise & Plimpton; and Jeffrey Tabak, a founding partner of the Private Funds practice at the New York office of Weil, Gotshal, & Manges. The panel will be moderated by Professor Elisabeth de Fontenay. This discussion, co-sponsored by the Business Law Society and the Career & Professional Development Center, is the first panel of a five-part series introducing students to the variety of different career paths available under the umbrella of business law. Lunch will be served. For more information, please contact Dorothy Jenke at
