From the moment students enter law school, they receive many different messages from students, faculty, staff, and employers -- some intentional and some unplanned -- that influence personal and profession choices and directions. As future lawyers who came to law school seeking to have an impact in the world, what messages have you heard? It is crucial to understand these experiences along your pathway so that the law school can best support students in realizing their aspirations and goals. Toward that end, this session will consist of a mapping workshop to learn about the messages communicated to students about their roles as lawyers, starting from their first contacts with Columbia Law School and moving through the law school experience. The session will be co-facilitated by student, staff, and faculty.

A non-pizza lunch will be served. This event is sponsored by the Public Interest Lawyering and Leadership Committee and SJI. The Lawyering for Change series is a monthly workshop aimed at providing an opportunity for faculty, students, staff, and alumni to interact informally with each other, framed by brief remarks about an issue or topic relating to the general theme.
