A distinguished panel of attorneys led a lively discussion today with 1L law students about the concepts of each student’s “brand” and the practical details of keeping true to their brand on a daily basis in professional and informal business settings. The Office of Career and Professional Development hosted the event as part of a “Professionalism” series.
Panelists Sonja McGill, Cedric Powell, and Adrienne Dominguez shared great advice and personal experiences with students.
Assistant Dean for Career and Professional Development, Courteney Harris, moderated the panel of five attorneys. Panelists participating today:
Professor Diana Howard and attorney Melissa Kingston take questions from students.
Topics for the panel, with a lot of questions from students along the way, included professional attire, social media management, etiquette in professional and informal business settings, professional boundaries, and tips on writing. The program was developed to prepare students for summer intern/extern placements and to provide information, tips and resources for effectively and methodically managing a professional presence now and throughout their career.
