Feb. 6, 2020 – Helping students learn 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.
The Spring 2020 Career Series, which includes four programs, opened this month 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 opportunity to ask a representative from Equal Justice Works in Washington, D.C. about public interest resources and opportunities available through the School of Law’s membership. Students also will learn from a panel of leaders in the legal profession about how they are supporting diversity initiatives at their law firms and in the profession as a whole. Additionally students will have the opportunity to hear from a class action litigator about this practice area.
“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.”
