Law Career Services Events for the First Week! (Updated)
August 13, 2012 at 3:59 PM
Law Career Services is glad to see you all again and to welcome the Class of 2015/2016! We look forward to working with you this year and are hosting three, noon-hour events in Bannan Hall for your first week back. 1Ls are very much encouraged to attend. We begin this year with panels on judicial clerkships, OCIs, and managing your online presence with social media.
8/14: Judicial Clerkships (Bannan 142 - Noon)
- A judicial clerkship is a post-graduate legal position where you work closely with a judge performing research and writing as a law clerk in a state or Federal court. It is an excellent way to gain deep research and writing experience, and often is a prestigious endeavor that leads to other legal employment. The application process for Federal judges is elaborate and requires much advance planning.
- A former law clerk will speak about his/her experiences in their judicial clerkship, recommendations for applying for clerkships, and other clerkship-related advice.
8/15: Panel on Call Back Interviews (Bannan 127 - Noon)
- This panel will offer perspectives on interviewing beyond the OCI process and converting a callback into an offer. The panelists will be offering perspectives on the callback process from both the student side and the firm side. They will discuss the challenges and fears students face today when they appear at the employer’s office for a round of multiple interviews.
- Join us on Wednesday, August 15th at noon in Bannan 127. Lunch will be provided and please be prepared to ask questions and engage the panelists.
8/16: The Risks and Considerations of Using Social Media: Managing Your Online Presence for Professional Success and Optimal Marketability (Bannan 127 - Noon)
- The use of social media is an excellent way to market yourself, network, gain more information about the profession you are interested in and connect with friends, family and colleagues. It can, however, also bring to light aspects of your personal life that you don't care to share with employers or professional associates, and sending the wrond "message" can have a severe impact on your marketability and your desired professional results.
- Rebecca Stuart, alumna of Santa Clara Law, former editor of the Santa Clara Law Review, and associate with Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati's employment and trade secrets litigation group, will be conducting a highly informative lunch hour session going over several aspects of social media and privacy laws that will help guide you in creating (or editing) your social media accounts to maximize your online presence in a pro-active and powerful way. Don't miss this opportunity to learn some invaluable information and meet a highly regarded legal professional!
The noon-hour events will be held in Bannan. We hope to see you there!
