The process for applying to 1L summer diversity positions at major law firms can be daunting. When do I apply? What should I say in my diversity statement? What are firms looking for? Is it worth my time to apply? Hear from students who have been through the application process before and succeeded. Lunch, provided by White & Case, will be served.

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.

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
