Mentoring Mixer Connects Students with Legal Professionals
July 9, 2014 - The Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Career and Professional Development Office and the Center for Ethics, Service, and Professionalism hosted a speed mentoring event for Tampa Bay campus students recently. Attorneys and students participated in rounds of speed mentoring followed by a networking reception. Students had the opportunity to network with attorneys from a broad range of practice areas and experience levels including general practitioners, government attorneys, attorneys from private law firms, as well as solo practitioners and attorneys from small, medium and large law firms.
"This event provides an exclusive opportunity to our students,” said Dionnie S. Wynter, campus director at Cooley Law School's Tampa Bay campus. “Cooley students are able to meet with attorneys, all from different practice areas, and engage in conversations that charged the room with a palpable energy."
The Criminal Law Society, the Native American Law Students Association, and The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Law Student Division chapters at Cooley's Tampa Bay campus co-sponsored the event.
