Join us for an evening of discussion and debate, where former LL.M. students currently working in the NYC metropolitan area will share their tips for a successful LL.M. and work in New York City. The speakers will cover (i) LL.M. class selection and strategy; (ii) networking opportunities; (iii) job interview dos and don’ts; (iv) life in the city after the LL.M. The discussion will be followed by networking drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

The evening is aimed at more junior practitioners but all are welcome to attend. We hope that you will be able to join us for what we are sure will be a very lively and enjoyable evening.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, this event is tuition-free. Spaces are limited so please register in advance to help us have an accurate headcount.
