Law school to launch 1L career development series

RALEIGH – Campbell Law School’s Career & Professional Development Center will launch a six-week series of lunchtime programming crafted specifically for its first year students on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at noon in room 105. The series includes an introduction to the new Career Center staff and a primer on the current legal job market, Symplicity training, drafting a legal resume, conducting a legal job search, creating an effective cover letter, and tips to improve networking.

Lunch will be provided to attending students throughout the entire series. All sessions will be held on Tuesdays at noon in room 105.

“The legal world is different than any other,” said Campbell Law Career Center Director Kala Taylor. “Legal employers have very specific and strict expectations, and they are unlike anything first-year law students have experienced previous.
