    Session Type: Section Programs
    Session Capacity: N/A

    A critical role of law schools is redefining what it means to be a lawyer. While many believe that ‘real’ lawyering means litigating cases, this session will explore ways to guide students looking for a different path: policy advocacy, restorative justice, community lawyering, social entrepreneurship, pro bono, public interest organization leadership, and more.  Lawyers are more satisfied when they are meaningfully engaged. As leaders, we help students identify their values and how they can effectuate them through experiences, resources, and relationships. This session will examine how students seek alternative paths in their careers, discuss creative ways to help them explore pathways consistent with their values and provide ideas attendees can translate into action. As we help students build bridges between their coursework and legal careers, we can help them forge paths into uncharted territory.
