CSO Goes to Washington

NALP, the Association of Legal Career Professionals, is dedicated to facilitating legal career counseling and planning, recruitment and retention, and the professional development of law students and lawyers. All of the counselors in CSO are members of NALP, participate in NALP activities, and attend the annal Educational Conference. This year, NALP's conference is in Washington, D.C. from Tuesday, March 30, through Friday, April 3, and we will be learning about new developments in the field from other law school career services people and also from recruiting personnel in large law firms and other large employers.

This year, Tom Maligno will be a presenter at two conference programs: “Counseling for Public Interest Careers from 1L to Retirement” and “A Report on the New Guide to Student Practice Rules: Boosting Practical Skills Training in Government and Public Interest Settings.”

Brett Gilbert will be a presenter at a program entitled “Learning to Blog II” (a continuation of his program last year about blogging and the Career Services Office).

Brett also has been selected to be one of seven NALP members to blog the Conference in real time. So, if you want to check in and see what is happening at the NALP conference (What? Not on your top 10 list?), go to the NALP blog here and read all about it.
