Join our hosts, Deans Emeritus Kellye Testy (LSAC CEO) and Ken Randall (iLaw President), as they lead a live dialogue about the state of legal education.

On the next Live with Kellye & Ken:

"Careers in Law"

Legal education prepares students for a wide variety of careers. Because the defining accomplishment of JD education has been its ability to foster critical thinking and creative problem-solving, graduates have been outstanding contributors in helping navigate change and complexity for a wide range of organizations and causes. In addition to the JD degree, now most law schools also offer a range of additional degree and certificate programs to foster learning in law, in both residential and blended formats. This panel discussion will highlight the wide variety of careers that education in law through one or more of these programs can facilitate, and the employment outlook for various career options.

Panelists will discuss the following issues and questions:
• What is the employment outlook for JD graduates?
• What are the range of careers that JD graduates pursue?
• What are some of the pros/cons of different career tracks, including “Big Law,” public interest law, business, solo practice, government service, corporate law department, etc?
• Should students follow a particular curriculum to prepare for these options?

Joining the discussion are:

• Dean Benjamin Barros, Toledo
• Dean Mary Lu Bilek, CUNY
• Dean Dan Hamilton, UNLV
• Dean Melanie Leslie, Cardozo School of Law
• James Leipold, National Association for Law Placement (NALP)

This engaging one hour discussion will include a Q&A period at the end. The event will be recorded. If you register but cannot attend, you will receive a link to watch at a later time.
