PICEL Hosts Second Annual Environmental and Energy Law Career Mentoring Session


On March 23, PICEL and the Faculty Practice Group on Environment, Energy, Oil & Gas, Land Use & Natural Resources, and Construction Law hosted its second annual career mentoring and networking event. Over 20 students and 10 adjuncts (including Barry Breen, Robert Solomon, and Josh Hurwitz), alumni (both JD and LL.M), and faculty participated. For the first part, students met one-on-one with an attorney mentor to discuss their resume and overall career advice for getting into the field. In addition to the WCL Faculty members, mentors came from government agencies, law firms, and non-governmental organizations. Following the formal session, alumni and adjuncts joined our students for a networking reception during which students could practice their networking skills by interacting with practitioners they did not know and with one another, meet practitioners, and learn more about the different areas of law.
