Been There—Should Have Done That! ABA YLD Members Provide Advice to Law Students and Young Lawyers

Vol. 39 No. 4

By

Andrew J. VanSingel is the Editor of The Affiliate and an attorney with Prairie State Legal Services in Wheaton, Illinois.

As the first person in my family to attend law school, the journey from my first semester to my first legal job was a trying at times. Where should I look for an internship? Should I study abroad? How do I market myself? I had to stumble through these issues on my own, and although I knew what I had to do, I did not fully understand the best way to go about it.

With the help of the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (ABA YLD), law students and young lawyers do not have to go through the process alone, thanks to ABA CareerLine LIVE!, a live, multi-platform, career advice and resume feedback event that recently took place at the Midyear Meeting in Chicago.
