We'd like to extend a special thank you to Cozen O'Connor P.C., Littler Mendelson P.C., Reed Smith LLP, and Walmart Inc., which served as sponsors of the 2018 1L LCLD Scholars Summit, May 22-24, 2018 in Philadelphia. We would also like to thank the LCLD attorney volunteers who conducted the Scholars' mock interviews, which were hosted at Reed Smith. There were 238 Scholars in attendance, 150 of which participated in mock interviews.
During the summit, LCLD President Robert Grey opened the meeting, which included several small breakout sessions led by LCLD Fellows Alumni and industry experts on legal practice areas, judicial clerkships, practicing in house, and using a law degree in business and other non-practicing positions.
Additionally, Scholars had several networking opportunities and learned ways to navigate their internships and the early years of their practice, strategies for overcoming bias in the workplace, and how to engage with professionals across generations.
