Alumni Lunch Talk


November 20, 2013 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Ever wonder what life would be like after landing a job as an associate at a firm? How would you successfully turn a summer associate position into a full time position? Please join the Business Law Society on November 20th from 12:00 - 1:00, as we ask Cardozo alumnus Benjamin E. Jaffe (associate at Hogan Lovells US LLP), Carrie Maylor DiCanio (associate at Anderson Kill P.C.), and Elana M. Jacob (associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP) about their experiences. Food will be served.

Sample questions to the panel may include:

What's a typical day as an associate? How much responsibility do associates receive?
What was your best / worst experience as an associate? What was your biggest mistake?
What's the firm environment like? Was it everything you expected?
Are you considering staying at the firm and becoming a partner? What are the advantages / disadvantages of doing so?
