There is no cost to attend; however, registration is required.

The Business Law Section, in conjunction with the Young Lawyers Division, once again invites young lawyers and law students to engage candidly and meaningfully with seasoned practitioners and coaches, who will provide insider tips and practical advice about choosing a practice area and successfully navigating a path to that practice.

Attendees will be divided into small groups which will rotate from table to table to discuss focused topics with mentors. Choosing a practice area and developing that practice area is essential to a successful (and fulfilling) legal career, and starting early can reap significant benefits. Topics for discussion will include the various practice options open to young lawyers, the skills that should be developed to target particular practice areas, and how to set yourself up for success if you are looking for a change in practice.

There is no fee to attend; however, registration is required. These programs are typically very well-attended, so we encourage you to register early. If you are interested in serving as a mentor for the program, please contact Shannon Gaughan at or Amy McVeigh at
