This free program is being put on by the law schools at the universities of Idaho, Utah, and Washington, and hosted at the U of Utah College of Law on Feb 17-18! Students will attend a series of panels on career paths including: firms, public interest jobs, non-traditional jobs, government positions, and judicial clerkships. They will also participate in interviews with various employers, and 1Ls will receive focused support to help hone their resumes and and cover letters. The program is free to Native American students, including all meals.
For millennia, Indigenous peoples have used focused attention and a deep understanding of their surroundings, the behaviors of humans, birds and four legged creatures, and clear intention to track and find people and animals. Today this practice is generally referred to as cutting sign or sign cutting.
Finding your place in the many and varied workplaces available to recent law school graduates requires the same kind of focused attention, understanding and clear intention that Indigenous peoples bring to cutting sign. This program is intended to introduce you to the basic skills you will need and some of the opportunities you will have as you begin this next phase of your journey in the law.
This event will help Native law students break into the legal profession and provide on-campus interview opportunities for employers. Discussion topics will include on-campus interviews, resume/cover letter and mock interview workshops, how to prepare and apply for clerkships, as well as in-house, firm, governmental and other legal positions. There will also be networking opportunities with Native lawyers from around the country.
This program is led by career professionals from the universities of Idaho, Utah, and Washington.
