APALSA was happy to introduce a new program for our job-hunting membership: our first Winter Walk-Around Program! The Program occurred over the span of two days: Friday, January 24 and Friday, January 31 with each session lasting 1-1.5 hours. This program was a fantastic opportunity for students of color to visit some of the top law firms in the world here in DC and make connections in preparation for OCI. Agendas included panels on firm life, diversity, and practice-specific areas.
Five of our top firm sponsors participated: Gibson Dunn, Sidley, Milbank, Akin Gump and Kirkland & Ellis. Thank you to the firms for their kind hospitality and thoughtful presentations!
We are looking forward to hosting Sidley attorneys at our upcoming firm sponsor lunch session on February 11. Students will be treated to a rare look into the operations and daily life of Sidley attorneys over a delicious meal.
