Management & Career Development
A complete legal education equips students not only to excel as lawyers but to enter the profession with the skills needed to manage all aspects of their careers.
The Center on Professionalism offers a wide array of extracurricular programming designed to cultivate lifelong career skills. These include:
Pro Bono 101
So that students may fully appreciate the professional responsibility of all lawyers to engage in pro bono legal service, and also embrace the impact that you can have on your education, your career, and your community through service, the Toll Public Interest Center requires that all 1Ls attend an orientation session. This class will be taught to each 1L cohort by 2Ls and 3Ls who will serve as Pro Bono Mentors for the cohort throughout the spring semester. In this orientation session, 1Ls will be encouraged to devise a pro bono plan that will most effectively achieve their personal and professional goals. 2Ls and 3Ls will participate in an extensive training session to enable them to facilitate this important discussion.
Successful Summer Series & Cracking the Market
These programs are aimed at 2L and 1L students, respectively. The goal of the Successful Summer Series is to help you understand the key professionalism skills you need to be successful in a 2L summer position. The Cracking the Market Series helps 1Ls better understand the particular demands of different geographic markets to begin networking and positioning for success in the 2L market.
