Event: CBLA – Yale Law School International Career Panel

Date: 02/28/2013

The CBLA and the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association co-presented an international career panel at Yale Law School.
For many students at leading law schools, getting the great first associate position is the easy part. According to one recent study, ap-proximately 7% of Yale Law School graduates make partner at a major law firm. How can you rise to the top? Gain your own clients? Develop your personal network? Gain a positive reputa-tion? Switch firms? What if your firm is experi-encing trouble? What steps should you be taking already? What about business, in-house, and government alternatives to law firms?
Panelists include partners in the China practice at Sidley Austin, Jun He, Dorsey & Whitney, as well as the Managing Director of Kinney Re-cruiting, and a Director of Lateral Link.
