Legal Studies Student/Alumni Networking Night

This event was sponsored by The Department of Legal Studies and the Legal Studies Undergraduate Board. Featured Alumni included Christopher Coleman '94, Ariel Dickerman '16, Heather Ducharme '16, Debora Ferreira '93 and Lillian Gordon. None of the alumni are currently practicing attorneys, and only one attended law school. This was intentional. The Legal Studies Undergraduate Board recognizes that not all Legal Studies majors go on to become practicing attorneys, and wanted to give students who aren't interested in practicing law a glance at what kind of career a degree in Legal Studies could lead to. We are hoping that this sort of event is the first of many to come, as the alumni in attendance were eager to talk to Legal Studies students and vice versa.
