Firm•wise 2013

Schiff Hardin Partner Lisa Brown, '95, talks to students about her firm.
Lecturer in Law Sean Kramer, '10, represented Kirkland & Ellis.
Firm•wise provides a first opportunity for many firms to meet our students.
Students often ask questions about firm culture and practice areas.
Fifty-nine firms participated in the event.
The conversations are often informal and fun.
Lawyers handed out business cards and law firm "swag" like pens and bags.
The 1Ls will have a lot of networking practice before OCI begins in the summer.
The Green Lounge was crowded with 1Ls eager to meet as many firms as possible.
Many of the representatives were alumni.
Several students used a map to plan which tables to hit.
Students left the event with a list of new connections at potential employers.

The annual firm·wise networking reception at the Law School brought 1Ls and 59 law firms together in advance of on-campus interviews (OCI) in the late summer. Students had the chance to meet firm representatives and learn more about potential employment. Photographs by Lloyd DeGrane.
