Plan to Attend 4th Annual “Mentoring Marathon” on January 22, 2011!

The Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar and the Utah Minority Bar Association invite all law students to attend the 4th annual “Mentoring Marathon,” Saturday, January 22, 2011, from 1:00-4:00 p.m.   This is a fabulous yearly event where students meet with and learn from attorneys in a variety of practice areas.

This year’s Mentoring Marathon will begin with a panel discussion on the effect of the current economy on the legal profession and employment prospects, followed by breakout sessions.  This year, the top-notch practitioners will present on topics such as “Associate Life 411 (targeted to 1L’s),” “Interviewing Tips,” “Professional Networking,” “Escape from Big Law,” and “Resume Reviews-One on One.” All students should plan to attend—there is no cost to you!  It will be a great opportunity to meet practicing attorneys and seek advice in a less formal setting.  The event will take place at the Utah Law & Justice Center, 645 South 200 East.
