I get a lot of emails from folks who would like to learn more about being an agriculture lawyer — some folks who are interested in going to law school and others experienced practitioners who want to reach out to agriculture clients. Beginning on April 6, 2012, I will have an “open mic” on the first Friday of the month from 2-3pm ET answering questions about how to become an agriculture attorney. This won’t be a webinar — just time to speak candidly about anything that is on your mind. I will address common concerns including: (1) applying/choosing a law school, (2) learning about agriculture law, (3) finding connections in the agriculture legal community, (4) different agriculture law careers, (5) building an agriculture law brand, (6) involvement in professional organizations, (7) finding mentors, (8) networking with attorneys and non-attorneys, and (9) hanging an agriculture law shingle.
There is no charge for this event. To RSVP, please email Cari at firstname.lastname@example.org and put the date that you wish to participate in the email subject. You will receive instructions via email. Skype or Google Video Chat will likely be used to host the call.
