Career Series helps students expand possibilities

FEB. 7, 2018 – Helping students learn more about different areas of the law and get practical advice from leading attorneys in these areas is the goal of the Department of Career Services’ Career Series. The Career Series, which began in 2010, is ongoing and offered in the fall and spring semesters.

This Spring 2018 Career Series opened today with a program on internships and postgraduate opportunities encompassing diverse practice areas with the S.C. Attorney General’s Office.

Later this semester, students interested in public service careers will have the unique opportunity to ask a representative from Equal Justice Works in Washington, D.C. about public interest resources and opportunities available to them through the School of Law’s membership.Students in Career Series

Students also will learn from an alumni panel how to succeed as a law firm summer associate. The series also will include a program on creative paths for lawyers who do not want to practice traditionally.

“The Charleston School of Law is grateful to the talented and generous attorneys who make our Career Series possible,” said Michelle Condon, director of public service and pro bono, who coordinates the Career Series. “The Career Series not only inspires students to think about new legal career paths but also presents an opportunity to connect with attorneys in a relaxed and interactive format.”
