Webinars

What do you want to learn? How to get a clerkship? We can do that. How to build relationships? That’s covered too. Closing that resume gap? Consider it done. And you can do learn all of that from your classroom or favorite coffee shop next week.

First up on Tuesday, April 26, at noon CDT is the latest in our “Demystifying Clerkships: State and Appellate Courts” series. Getting a clerkship and being prepared can be a daunting task for even the best law students. How do you stand out in the application stacks? What are judges and justices looking for in applicants? What should candidates expect during an interview?

Let a panel of state and appellate judges demystify the whole process. Post your questions at registration or live during the program, and we’ll get them answered. Space is limited, so register here.

Our co-sponsor is the ABA Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division – Judiciary Committee.

Our second webinar next week is next Friday, April 29, at 11:30 a.m. CDT and is on Building Professional Relationships: Tips for New Lawyers. Your career’s success is dependent on the relationships you have with others. The professional relationships you build may lead to job of your dreams or to new legal business. But how do you start building them? Let a law firm marketing and business development director, a diversity director, and a mid-level associate tell you how. Post your questions at registration or live during the program, and we’ll get them answered.

Get the details on the panelists – one of whom just recorded a podcast for us – and how to register on the webinar info page. Sponsors include the ABA Young Lawyers Division, the ABA Judicial Division National Conference of Federal Trial Judges, and the ABA Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division Judiciary Committee.

It’s also time for the latest in the 10 Questions Live Google Hangout on Air series as Julianne Walsh, a one-time big firm lawyer turned stay-at-home mom turned high-tech lawyer, talks about how to keep pursuing that dream job – and how to address a resume gap that could stop you on the way. That takes place Thursday, April 28 at 1 p.m. CDT.

And if you’re looking to catch some more information you can consume, listen to the audio from GPSolo’s recent brownbag session on achieving the work-school-life balance that can be challenging on today’s hectic world. “Being Intentional About Creating Balance in Your Life” can help you develop strategies to balance the various areas of life including work, family, personal, and community.
