SHARE YOUR SECRETS TO SUCCESS!
Do you dream of being revered for knowing the Secrets to Success? If so, here is your chance! The 2016 LCLD Scholars Summit will showcase a Secrets to Success panel, featuring LCLD Fellows, and you can be a part of the action! We need five to seven Fellows to sit on a panel discussing the truth about practice…your highs, your lows, how you survived, and your best advice for thriving. After the panel, each Fellow will host a no-holds barred small group, ask-anything session with about 35 Scholars. This session has always been a big hit at the Scholars Summit, and this year, it’s up to you to continue the tradition.
LCLD Scholars are diverse, rising 2L law students that have been hired by LCLD Member organizations to work for the summer. As part of the Scholars program, Scholars attend a 3-day Summit, hosted by LCLD. The LCLD Scholars Summit is May 19-21, 2016, in Chicago. The Secrets to Success panel and breakouts are scheduled for Friday, May 20, from 1 - 4 p.m. You are invited (but not required) to also join us for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. and for a reception that evening from 6 - 7:30 p.m.
For more information, please email Lori Lorenzo, email@example.com.
