12th Annual Government Legal Careers Forum - February 20, 2019

Overview

The Washburn Law Government Legal Careers Forum brings together legal professionals working in a variety of government positions to visit with each other and Washburn Law students about the advantages and challenges of pursuing a career in the government. Both practicing attorneys and professionals who use their legal education in a non-practice setting are encouraged to participate in this event.

The Forum will facilitate easy networking and conversation, and refreshments will be served. We hope to have a wide variety of representatives on hand to network with each other and with students interested in government careers. This will be an interesting and enjoyable event for everyone involved.

Government representatives attending the Forum also are invited to attend a complimentary hour of continuing legal education immediately prior to the Forum.

Participating in both the Forum and the CLE is free of charge to employees of government agencies and Washburn Law students.

More information about the 2019 forum will be available late 2018/early 2019.

Registration

We will begin accepting registrations for the CLE and the Forum in January 2019.

Contact Tammy King, Director of Professional Development and Pro Bono, at (785) 670-1703 or tammy.king1@washburn.edu with questions.
