Madison/Milwaukee Day: On Friday, March 27, a number of Madison and Milwaukee area law firms, most of which recruit here on campus every fall, will be in the Atrium from 1 to 4 p.m. for "Madison/Milwaukee Day." The Career Services Office organizes this and similar events to give students, particularly 1Ls, the chance to familiarize themselves with these employers (mainly large or mid-size law firms) and their practice areas and to meet some of their lawyers, many of whom are our alumni.
Be sure to stop by the Atrium that afternoon to take advantage of this opportunity to introduce yourself to the employer representatives and to get a head start on your job search for next summer. In the current economy, it would be a mistake not to capitalize on every chance to meet and network with lawyers who might be helpful to you. Pizza will be served, but only to students who actually talk to the lawyers!
