What does life as an in-house counsel really look like? What can I expect in the day-to-day? Does your law firm manage projects differently than mine? How do I transition from being a generalist to a specialist? During this panel, speakers will talk about their experiences in the public vs. private sectors, how to practice in a niche topic area, address how they got to where they are now, and answer any questions you have about career trajectories. Join us virtually or in-person for the panel discussion. An in-person reception will follow the panel. This program is limited to FDLI members who are a part of NFDL, summer associates, and student members.
