Program Goals and Objectives
Please keep in mind that the program does not focus on job search
strategies or specific practice areas. The CSO offers a variety of
job search and practice specific programs throughout the academic year.
To increase students' understanding of the expectations employers have
of new attorneys;
To help students better understand the many factors beyond law school critical
to professional success;
To emphasize the importance of civility and respect in the profession and
to encourage students to build successful relationships with adversaries
and colleagues from the beginning of their professional careers; and
To inspire students to strive for professional excellence and outstanding
service to clients.
Strategies for Excellence: Law as a Profession 2001 will be offered
twice on February 7th, once for day students, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.,
and again for the evening division, from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. Classes
for the rest of the student body will be canceled that day.
We are very
excited about the caliber of speakers who have graciously volunteered their
time to speak to students at Strategies for Excellence: Law as a Profession
2001. This is a chance to meet and impress legal employers from
the Chicagoland area. Therefore, professional
attire is required. Check out the
speaker page for a list of panel & breakout session speakers, as well
as keynote and distinguished speakers.
