Details

The Business Law Society invites you to take part in a brand new program for USD law students. The goal of Lattes with Lawyers is to connect students with practicing lawyers over coffee in order to help students learn about different areas of law. Hopefully this will remove the (sometimes) frightening barrier of cold-calling a lawyer with the hope of meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to allow students to learn about the realities of different areas of law directly from attorneys practicing in that area.

How it works:

  • You pick two or three dates/times between October 17 and December 4, 2016, when you would be available for 30 minutes to chat with a USD law student over coffee.
  • You choose the location of the meeting.
  • Students will see your name and information (areas of law, date, time, and location) and will sign up for a time slot.
  • You will be notified at least two days ahead of your meeting whether or not your time slot was filled, along with the student's resume.

Don't worry:

  • This is not a job interview. It will be made clear to the students that these meetings are meant to be informative, but not preliminary meetings leading to jobs.
  • You do not need to practice in the area of business law to sign up for Lattes with Lawyers. Ideally, the program will involve a wide variety of practice areas.
  • Not a coffee drinker? You are welcome to meet just to chat or over a different activity.

To sign up, please email bls.usd@gmail.com with your name and information (dates, times, location, and practice area(s)). BLS appreciates your support!
