The Association of the Bar of the City of New York has informed of us of one event that sounds particularly intriguing. It, along with Vault.com, will host a day long program called “Getting Back in the Game: How to Restart Your Career in a Down Economy.” The Association explains that this program is “designed to assist job-seeking attorneys in learning how best to market themselves whether they are looking to go to a firm, start their own practice or are considering an alternative legal career.” We understand things aren't pretty our there in the legal world and commend the New York City Bar and Vault.com for putting together what looks to be a stellar event.
Speakers will include Patricia Hynes (President of the New York City Bar), Brian Dalton (Senior Law Editor of Vault.com), David Lat (founding editor of Above The Law), T.J. Duane (Principal of Lateral Link), a hiring partner and recruiting director from major international law firms, and many other notable members of the legal community.
