One of the major points of emphasis at the Career Development Office is providing our students with educational programming. We try to provide an array of programming options for our students to assist them in learning about topics such as different practice areas, public versus private sector, networking, interviewing and other job search skills. February is always a busy month for programs at Tulane Law School, and this year is no exception. In the next several weeks, there will be many events for students to attend on various career-related topics. Next Tuesday, we will start off with our “Interviewing Tips from the Experts” program, where we will host hiring attorneys and recruiters from both the public and private sector. The week will continue with an information session with the Navy JAG and a meeting to introduce an expansion to our already-successful externship program. In addition to the existing opportunities for academic credit for school-year externships, this year the program is expanding to allow students to receive class credit for student-generated and pre-approved summer internships in the public sector. This is a wonderful new opportunity at TLS, and we are very excited to provide this to the student body. The following week, the CDO counselors will host a special Valentine’s Day-themed résumé and cover letter review session. The month will close out with a speed networking program with local-area practitioners, where the law students will be able to practice their networking skills in a “speed dating” format. A networking reception will follow. Finally, we’ll end the month with our annual judicial clerkship panel, where TLS alumni who are current and former judicial law clerks will speak with students about the value of judicial positions, the application process and the like. We are sure that our students will be eager to take advantage of these programming opportunities. This is definitely a busy and exciting month at TLS!
