Career Choices: Plaintiffs-side Litigation

Tuesday, Nov. 9, 12 – 1 p.m. (virtual); Register here

Are you interested in Civil Rights litigation? Consumer Protection? Public interest ‘impact litigation’? Medical malpractice, product liability and toxic torts litigation? Do you want your work to feel meaningful by helping individuals?  

Further, are you looking for an attorney job with 1) work-life balance (no billable hours, no ‘face time’); 2) autonomy and early responsibility (no reporting to a client who is also an attorney); 3) substantial court time; and 4) a high level of compensation (35-40% of verdicts and settlements)? Then plaintiffs-side practice may be the right fit for you! Attend this panel to learn more.
