Lawctopus’ 8-Day Legal Career Program [Oct 5-Nov 30]: Register by Sep 29

Lawctopus Law School brings out a unique 8-week workshop to answer most of the career questions a young law student (1st-3rd year) would have.

If you have just entered law school or are in the early years of your law school, this workshop will give you skills, clarity, and confidence about your career. (If you are later years and think the below structure of the workshop could help you, feel free to register too).

What to do? Why? How to do it? The clouds of confusion will be cast aside, though not completely because a bit of confusion is a good thing. 🙂

You’ll learn how to think about your career, how to specifically plan your law school life, CVs, internships, leading up to jobs in myriad career options that law affords you.
