Prepare to Practice

March 29, 2010

There are a number of events particularly geared to 3Ls coming up over the next two months that we encourage you to attend.  These programs cover a range of topics to help you prepare for work and life after law school, from financial planning to enhancing your research and writing skills.  The Library is sponsoring two different events:

Top Ten Time and Cost Effective Legal Research Strategies with Lexis and Westlaw

Wednesday, April 7 from 3:00-4:00 and Friday, April 16 from 12:00-1:00pm.  In Library computer lab on L2. No preregistration required.

Lawyering Skills: A Crash Course in Legal Writing, Research, and Practice

Wednesday, April 21, 3:10-5:00pm, Room 122
Cosponsored by CDO, the Yale Law Library, Student Affairs, and Academic Affairs

This two-hour program will give students vital information to help them succeed in their first jobs or their summer jobs, including: how to approach assignments, cost-effective research skills, project management, and navigating the billable hour.  Light refreshments and snacks will be served courtesy of the Law Library.

Please also see the New Employment Survival Skills organization page on the Inside site which contains handouts from presentations, an events calendar for all of the "prepare to practice" events, and helpful links, as well as the basic Summer Survival Skills website.
