Join Wasserstein Fellow O.H. Skinner for a community discussion about his career path, a path which saw a transition from a traditional Big Law job in a major city to spending over a decade in public service in Arizona. O.H. will share lessons he learned along the way, how Big Law may (or may not) be helpful to later successes, and how to think about the long arc of your career after HLS. Lunch provided. Please RSVP.

Join OCS for an informational panel with current HLS students who spent their 1L summer working in-house at companies. We will cover the type of work students can expect and the application process for in-house positions, and answer your questions. Non-pizza lunch will be provided.

International JD Students have unique concerns when seeking summer, and ultimately post-graduate, employment. Bring your lunch and your questions to an informal meeting with OCS’s Yih-hsien Shen and OPIA’s Jillian Tuck. Let us dispel rumors, address fears, and provide you with suggestions to help you in your job search.

An interview is your chance to showcase your qualifications and enthusiasm for a law firm position. Attend this session to learn how to prepare for and succeed in your US-style interviews. Lunch will be served. This program will be recorded and posted to the OCS website for those unable to attend.

Many legal jobs are all about understanding, and typically avoiding, risk. So how do we, as lawyers, think about embracing risk when pursuing our own careers? Let’s talk candidly about embracing taking chances, making objective-ish judgments about when a risk is worth it, some of the practical considerations of risk-taking, and the joys and hardships of a nonlinear professional trajectory. Learn from Wasserstein Fellow Hannah Fried’s personal experience: from taking the bar exam later than my classmates (which seemed wildly risky at the time!) to working on political campaigns (with their unpredictable outcomes – and predictable period of unemployment following) to starting my own organization. Lunch provided. Please RSVP
