The first Women
in Law general meeting was held on Monday, September 9.
If you missed it, the information covered was an introduction
of the board members (their names are found below), the
Mentorship Program, volunteer opportunities, and dues.
The mentorship program is
a program where law students are matched up with an attorney
in the area of law they are interested in practicing in.
In the next few weeks, the mentorship program coordinators
will be contacting you to send in certain information to be
matched up. Of course, you have to be a dues paying
member first so get your dues in soon.
volunteer opportunities can be found on the Women in Law
Bulletin Board on the Concourse level or on our webpage.
Also, if you have any
ideas for programs that you would like to see, or if you would
like to get more involved by running a program or bringing in
a speaker, please let us know. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
