Law students often receive their first practical experience in the practice of law as a law student employee of a law firm. This can be a great experience for law students, but a law student is not a lawyer and what the law student is allowed to do is limited. This session will define the parameters of “practice” for law students and not-yet-licensed law school graduates, and provide practical tips on how to handle the partner or supervising lawyer when the law student is asked to go too far.

Speaker: Selina Thomas, ABA Client Protection Counsel
