Seminars and Workshops
Throughout each trimester, we offer a wide variety of seminars, online training, and workshops to provide you with the essentials of marketing yourself to legal employers. These programs examine the tricks of the trade and are designed to help you achieve successful career advancement. Current students can view our upcoming events in their Office 365 campus calendar.
Every year, CPDO sponsors a series of attorney panel discussions featuring practitioners from many law firms and organizations, that provide a realistic overview of specific practice areas. Each panel discussion includes a question and answer session, as well as the opportunity to network with participating attorneys.
Throughout the year, but primarily in fall and spring, legal employers come to California Western to interview students on campus for law clerk and entry-level positions. Many of these opportunities are in San Diego, but employers from other parts of California and around the country also participate.
Lunch with Lawyers
"Lunch With Lawyers" is a chance for students to share a relaxed, catered, lunchtime discussion with an alumnus/a or local attorney who practices law or is otherwise employed in a specific area of interest. Lunch groups are limited to seven students and the participating attorney, to ensure that the meeting is intimate, productive, and informative. Participating attorneys can be a valuable source of career and professional guidance for students, as well as a new friend in the legal community. To receive advance notice about upcoming lunches, email Heidi Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the Lunch with Lawyers interest list.
