Justice, Government & Law Networking Night

Come to the Justice, Government & Law Networking Night ! This networking event will be perfect for students in their first year to senior year, who are interested in legal services, political positions, careers in justice, or working with federal and state agencies. While the primary purpose of the event is for students to learn more about a career field and identify the skills needed to be successful, some organizations will also be recruiting for internship and job openings! 

We have expanded this event this year to accommodate more alumni and employers, so let me know if you have an alum or internship site supervisor you would like to invite (while we still have room)!
