As a continuation of providing a broad range of career programming this Monday, March 21, the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) President, Stephen P. Younger, also a partner at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler, will speak to Brooklyn Law School students, sharing valuable advice and lessons to prepare them for their transition into the practice of law. He will also discuss the benefits of being student members of the New York State Bar Association.
Students will have the unique opportunity to meet Younger and learn about various opportunities to work with NYSBA sections and committees, as well as scholarships and fellowships offered by the NYSBA. Students will also benefit from hearing from a student who will share his experience of being a NYSBA member.
Any student who joins the NYSBA during the reception or a NYSBA Section, will be registered to win a Kindle Wireless Reading Device with Wi-Fi, a 6" Display and New E Ink Pearl Technology.
In the same week, on Thursday, the Career Center is hosting an event entitled Career Conversations II, the second in a series that focuses on alumni in diverse positions outside the practice of law. Students will be able to “speed network” by sitting and talking with alums
for a few minutes at a time, and they will learn from graduates who have used their legal education to become CEOs, City Council members, newspaper editors, entrepreneurs, and presidents and vice presidents of a range of companies from the tri-state area. Read the participants’ bios here.
"The events are critical because learning more about bar associations and careers in alternative practice areas informs the decisions that students must make about their careers," said Camille Chin-Kee-Fatt, Director of the Career Center at Brooklyn Law School. “I encourage all students to participate and take advantage of these valuable opportunities.” Learn more
