law school

DC Dialogues proudly presents Law School and Beyond, a webinar series created to help guide students interested in pursuing law school, to give insight into the law school experience, and to give students networking opportunities for post law school careers by introducing the many paths a law degree can provide. The law school application process has changed significantly since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, especially with the introduction of the LSAT Flex. The opening session of this series is designed to help students navigate the application process and decide if law school is right for them. After law school, there are a variety of paths a student can take, from working at a law firm to helping draft policies on Capitol Hill. Panelists from all backgrounds will be featured in specific sessions in the coming weeks to help shine a light on the realities of law-related careers so that students can learn more about the various options ahead of them after they complete law school.

Registration is required in order to receieve the log-in details for each session. Please note that these webinars may be recorded.

In 2017, DC Dialogues held a Pre-Law Conference for students considering law school. This current series builds off of this half-day convening, where students learned how to get into top firms, prestigious government positions, and how to start their own private practice. The conversations explored how to prepare for a career in law and how to navigate the work force post graduation. Panelists shared their personal experiences, provided advice, and offered tips. Check out the program videos below prior to partaking in this year's sessions that will offer new insight and expertise!
