Job Tips & Advice for Young Lawyers & Law Students During COVID-19

Opportunity Overview

June 18 2020; 6:15 pm- 7:30 pm EDT

This is a virtual event.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted many industries and the ability of people to maintain their jobs. It has also upended job prospects for many students and recent graduates just beginning their entry into the workforce in their given field. This is no different from those practicing, or studying to practice, law.

The New York County Lawyers Association will put on a webinar addressing this very issue, as it pertains to law students and young, or new(er), lawyers. Per the NYCLA:

During this difficult time, seeking employment in the legal field has become a maze that law students, recent graduates and young lawyers need help navigating.

Hear from an experienced panel as they discuss trends in legal hiring due to COVID-19 including:
— What professional opportunities might be available to 1L and 2L law students this Summer; How can they get the most out of those experiences; How can they compensate if they cannot secure an internship/Summer Associate position this year?
— How should recent law graduates even search for a job during the pandemic; What should law graduates do if their job offers were rescinded: For unemployed graduates, how can they make the most of this Summer and Fall; What can law graduates do if they cannot take a Bar Exam this Fall; How can law graduates protect their long-term job prospects?
— How can you network effectively during COVID-19?
— What can law schools do to help recent graduates and their alumni?
… and MORE!!

Our speakers will also entertain questions from the attendees
