The 7th Annual Starting Line!

For the 7th year, the CSD will be hosting an event exclusive to 1Ls called “The Starting Line” in the Atrium on Thursday, November 15th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Attorneys from the academic, corporate, judicial, government/public interest, private practice and alternative sectors will be in attendance to visit with students in a table talk format regarding their careers, areas of practice, and the hiring criteria used by their specific firms/organizations.

Please note that this event is not designed as a venue for employer recruitment. Rather, The Starting Line is an educational event for 1Ls, which we hope will demonstrate the versatility of the Juris Doctor degree and provide you with an opportunity to speak with a diverse group of attorneys about their own career paths in the law. Business dress is required and your resume will serve as your ticket for entry.  Make sure to drop off your resume to our CSD staff and do not bring one with you into the event!  For more information about what to wear and bring, visit our website at All 1Ls must RSVP on Symplicity by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13th.  Remember that all students are already registered in the Symplicity system, you simply need to log in using your regular FCSL login information. We look forward to seeing 1Ls on Thursday for this fun and informative event!
