Coffee and Conversation Roundtable Series - Strategies for New Lawyers in Pan(dem)ic

Event Description

Due to the current situation, this program is REMOTE-ONLY participation. There will be NO in-person attendance. 

As the practice of law changes and lawyers are constantly forced to adjust to a new reality, the MSBA NLS Section will host bi-weekly roundtable discussions as a way to connect and share how other new lawyers are navigating.


Roundtable Session Two - Career Strategies for New Lawyers in Pan(dem)ic
With COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the economy, new lawyers are right to be concerned business interruptions will cause career disruption.  Join the NLS for a virtual coffee hour on Wednesday, May 6 at 10:30 AM featuring attorneys who were new lawyers during the 2008 recession. These attorneys will share their experiences and tips on how to find career opportunities and build a legal career in spite of a bust economy.
