The Current State of the Legal Profession

February 08, 2023 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043

With recent news about law school rankings, an impending recession, and a crisis of legitimacy in the American judicial system, conversations about the current state of the legal profession are more important than ever. Join us for a discussion with David Lat, the highly influential founder of Above the Law, Jennifer Dickey, the Deputy Chief of the US Chamber of Commerce Litigation Center, and Mark Rothrock, a local attorney at Smith Anderson. The three will discuss emerging issues in the legal world and how the next generation of lawyers can prepare themselves for the profession. Lunch will be provided.
