Building Pipelines That Will Foster and Cultivate Our Emerging Leaders in Academia and their Careers
Professional Development Podcast
The Podcast Series features professionals from across the country and highlights their experiences and key attributes that have ultimately led to their personal successes. The Podcast will also provide helpful tips for law students to integrate into their own legal careers. The two primary focuses for this year's objectives include: branding and non-traditional careers. Our series will include but are not limited to these areas.
This year we will implement videos of our Professional Development Series into videos that will be uploaded on our NBLSA YouTube Channel. We recognize the impact of technology and want to ensure NBLSA's membership is receiving information in a method that is most effective.
NBLSA is ensuring that we are at the forefront of creating brilliant legal trained minds that can effectively navigate in their academics and careers. Our Regional Academic Retreats are structured to provide our membership with the academic support that is necessary to thrive as a law student. They are held during the fall in each region. This year we have been offered partnership assistance from the Council of Legal Education Opportunity and Kaplan PMBR.
This will be the first year that we include an interactive blog between students and attorneys across the nation. The "E-Career Blog" Series will begin in September. After the topic of conversation is listed, the blog will open for students. Look out for the link in the Communications Blast.
E-Attorney Video Series
This year we will implement a video series highlighting interviews with practicing attorney in different areas of the law such as the judiciary, in-house counsel, and private firms. These practicing attorneys will provide our membership with insight about their career. Not only will we examine the career duties and obligations of these attorneys, but also we will examine what these attorneys have done in order to set themselves apart from their colleagues. It is imperative that our NBLSA membership recognizes the importance of looking beyond traditional careers and distinguishing yourself amongst your counterparts.
