Legal employers come to California Western to interview students on campus for student law clerk and entry-level positions in San Diego and throughout the state and country.
Lunch with Lawyers
Lunch with Lawyers is a chance for students to share a relaxed, catered, lunchtime discussion with an alumnus or local attorney who practices law or is otherwise employed in a specific practice area of interest. Lunch groups are limited to seven students and the participating attorney, to ensure that the meeting is intimate, productive, and informative.
