Succeeding In Law: Guidance from Mentors Who Have Walked in Your Shoes

February 29, 2020   |   10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

A critical part of legal education is learning about the legal profession and the variety of careers you can pursue with a J.D. degree. These lessons are more impactful when they come from accomplished professionals who share backgrounds similar to yours, and who can mentor you as you follow the paths they once walked.

At Succeeding in Law, join fellow prospective students to hear from a panel of 15 attorneys as they discuss their careers and educational experiences. Then participate in a speed networking session where you can speak directly with panelists, as well as additional attorneys and judges. A lunch with panelists, current Southwestern students, alumni, and faculty will conclude the program. Check back soon for a detailed event agenda!
