Professionalism and Practice Tips for Law Students
Pitt Law’s chapter of the American Inns of Court Seeks students for a unique learning and networking opportunity (with free food and drinks)!
The W. Edward Sell Inn of Court, an organization of lawyers and judges dedicated to the promotion of professionalism, ethics, and civility, will hold its monthly event in March here at the law school, and the event, as the title suggests, is expressly designed for law students. The Inn is seeking students from any class to commit to attend and participate in what promises to be a lively discussion of what professionalism means in the “real world” of law practice. Advance reservation is required.
Participating students will join lawyers from the Inn in small groups to talk out how best to resolve a set of scenarios that present thorny challenges implicating a lawyer’s professionalism or ethics. Don’t worry about your familiarity with the concept of professionalism or your level of knowledge of rules of ethics—the Inn members will help guide you through the scenarios. You can learn from them (and they can learn from you too), network with them, and then after the 90-minute program, share food and drink with them! Learning, networking, eating, drinking—four good things all at once! There will be a small bar with wine and beer, as well as finger sandwiches, cheese and fruit trays, cookies and soda.
Students who wish to reserve a spot should send an e-mail to Professor Ben Bratman at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating name, year in law school, and preferred e-mail address. Again, advance reservation is required.
