Throughout the school year, the Dean hosts roundtable discussions with prominent guests who have utilized their law degrees in a variety of nontraditional ways. Over lunch with a small group of students, guests discuss their work experiences, sharing valuable insights about how they found their chosen path. Please note that the roundtables are informal and off-the-record.
