Late in the fall semester, Roger Williams University School of Law hosted its Sixth Annual Legal Career Options Day, and over 150 law students had the chance to speak with almost 60 attorneys in our Atrium. Attorneys conducted table talk and shared information about their careers and employment options with their firms and institutions. Career Services Dean Anthony Bastone once again recruited a broad cross-section of successful attorneys, manifesting the “versatility of the J.D. degree.”
Our special guests included The Honorable Paul D. Stickney, Federal Magistrate Judge in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas (whose son, John, is in my Torts class). Another parent of a 1L (Robin Sommer, also in my Torts section!) shared his unique practice in prisoner rights and environmental law in Albany, New York.
As usual, The Rhode Island Office of the Attorney General was well represented. Attendees included Matthew Dawson, Deputy Chief, Criminal Division; Pam Chin, Chief of the Narcotics/Organized Crime Unit; and Special Assistant Attorney General William Trezvant. The judicial branch was represented by judges from the Rhode Island District Court, Superior Court, Supreme Court, and Workers’ Compensation Court. Corporate, in house counsel were also well represented by Schneider Electric, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Brown University, and FGX International Inc. to name a few.
Once again, thanks to the Rhode Island Bar Association, which co-sponsored.
Below are some pictures from the event.
