Students to explore legal careers
October 17, 2005 —
SVSU will host Law Awareness Day Friday in Groening Commons and the second floor Curtiss Hall seminar rooms to educate students about careers in the legal field. Online registration is still open for the event, which will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The day's feature will be two rounds of 50-minute panel discussions. The panel discussions will be broken into four categories: corporate & private law firms, government and administrative agencies, law enforcement & criminal justice agencies, and non-profit / lobbying / legal aid agencies. Each student attending will pick two of the four panel discussion categories they would like to listen to.
There will be three speakers for each category. The speakers will include representatives from different law firms, the Saginaw Township police, the Circuit Courts of Michigan and State Senator Joel Gougeon. There will also be representatives from the FBI, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and the U. S. Department of Homeland Security.
The Michigan State University College of Law, Thomas M. Cooley Law School, University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, University of Toledo College of Law, and Wayne State University College of Law will all have representatives with whom students can speak with.
There will be informational booths set up for different SVSU organizations, the Delta College Police Academy, and the different speaker agencies will also be there with booths.
