Do you have questions about how to incorporate social networking into your job search? Have you received conflicting advice about whether to create a LinkedIn account and whether to delete your Facebook profile? Then mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at Noon in room 550 to hear Amanda Ellis, author of The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs (2010), answer all of your questions about incorporating social networking into your job search! This very popular presentation is one you won’t want to miss!
The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs teaches lawyers and law students how to get hired through relationships they develop and cultivate on the three most popular social networking sites–Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter (collectively, the “Big 3”). Many job seekers maintain a presence on the Big 3 sites. But, a mere presence is not sufficient to get hired—it’s only one element. The 6Ps of the BIG 3™ for Job-Seeking JDs teaches law students and lawyers how to incorporate the 6Ps (Professionalism, Profile, Privacy, Performance, Practice, Protocol) and outlines over 60 ways to use the Big 3 sites to get hired.
Amanda Ellis is the Vice President of Search for Special Counsel. Prior to her current role, Ms. Ellis worked as an Attorney Search Director at Special Counsel and her own search firm where she placed attorneys in law firms and corporate legal departments. Amanda Ellis Legal Search also publishes Something Different, a monthly e-newsletter that outlines a new or different service or resource available to legal professionals in each issue. Prior to entering the legal recruiting field, Amanda practiced commercial bankruptcy law in Massachusetts and Texas. Amanda is a graduate of The University of Texas School of Law and Centenary College of Louisiana.

The Blackstone Legal Fellowship is a prestigious, nine-week summer internship program designed to train future legal scholars, litigators, policy makers, and judges, and is unlike any other opportunity available to Christian law students. What makes Blackstone unique?
Blackstone interns gather for two weeks at the beginning of the summer for intensive training in constitutional jurisprudence, natural law, history, and effective advocacy, taught by prominent legal scholars from around the country.
Each intern then participates in a six-week field internship that is individually selected to advance each intern’s career objectives. Placements include government entities, law firms, policy groups, and public interest legal organizations, both domestic and international.
The summer concludes with a week of career development training led by top litigators, jurists, and other legal professionals.
Upon completion of the program, interns will have the opportunity to join the Fellowship and have access to a dedicated career services team, additional training opportunities, and a broad alumni network that is available throughout their professional careers.
Blackstone is entering its 15th year, and has trained over 1,300 law students. These alumni are now working in major law firms and prominent government offices, teaching at top law schools, and clerking at every level of the state and federal judiciary systems.
Admission to Blackstone is highly competitive. Those selected for participation are provided airfare, lodging, materials, and a $6,300 scholarship. See the attached flyer for details on how to join the webinar.

eLawyering and the Future of Legal Work
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
12:00 – 12:45 pm
Florida Coastal School of Law
FCSL Career Services Department
FCSL Center for Law Practice Technology
The American Bar Association eLawyering Task Force
(Law Practice Management Section)
eLawyering is doing legal work – not just marketing it – over the Web. Pioneering practitioners have found dramatic new ways to communicate and collaborate with clients and other lawyers, produce documents, settle disputes, interact with courts, and manage legal knowledge. There are exciting initiatives underway now that deserve attention by all lawyers – present and future.
The legal profession is being disrupted from without and from within. To be successful in the coming era, lawyers will need to know how to practice over the Web, manage client relationships in cyberspace, and offer “virtual” legal services.
Come hear about the knowledge and skills you need to prosper in the years ahead and the new legal technology and law practice management courses to be offered by the Center for Legal Technology at Florida Coastal School of Law.
This is a 35 minute presentation on the Center’s Program and how its courses lead to new careers preparing students for 21st century law practice. There will be the opportunity for students to ask questions about the Center and the courses.
Pizza and drinks will be provided to those who RSVP on the Events tab of Symplicity or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
RSVP by Monday, October 28th at 3:00 p.m.!
