On February 19th around 50 students from Project Rousseau Chicago visited the offices of Sidley Austin and received a wonderful introduction to the lucrative world of corporate law.
Throughout the day, students gained broad exposure to different areas of law through panel sessions with the lawyers. They were also fortunate enough to talk to 2 associates and 3 partners who took time out of their busy schedules to offer our students a glimpse into their successful careers.
Students learned about the steps one should take in order to attend law school, and also how to improve their skills and knowledge to land a job at a law firm once they graduate. They were given plenty of time to ask any questions that they had for the lawyers, and the students definitely made the most of it!
The lawyers and students had such a great time and we are looking forward to taking more students to visit Sidley Austin next year. If you are interested in getting involved by giving our students some professional insight then please do contact us!
