Creating Meaning and Connection with Law Students in the Evolving Workplace
Room 301: 2:15 PM to 3:30 PM
The pandemic has changed the ways that many of our offices operate, and the nature of law practice itself. Whatever our work modality, we must re-think some of the ways we engage student workers so that they can gain a real understanding of what public interest legal careers look like. This panel will focus on strategies that public interest employers can utilize to ensure that students have meaningful learning experiences, while also meeting the agency's evolving needs, including: structuring the internship, best practices for giving assignments and providing feedback, and creating supervision structures that foster building connections.
