Conversation Series

ConversationSeries_HeaderFaculty of the Program on Law and Leadership extend an invitation to a group
 of law students, usually fewer than 20, to attend lunch with a distinguished
 guest. Discussions normally highlight the guest’s career climaxes and leadership participation. Several conversations are held each year, and speakers are typically lawyers whose positions are outside of the usual law firm career track, including lawyer-leaders in nonprofit organizations, private businesses, or government. Student attendees who have expressed interests in a certain area of law are matched with guests to allow those students to interact with attorneys who represent a wide range of law-intersecting careers.
