Save the Date for the School of Law's Annual Connections Networking Reception

Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019
Time: 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. 
Location: TBC


Connections is NUSL’s largest annual networking event that the Office of Alumni/ae Relations hosts for current students. The event's goal is to provide career guidance and professional development to our current 1L’s, 2L’s, and 3L’s. Graduates from all over New England are invited to attend and approximately 100 alumni/ae participate each year. These graduates serve as short-term advisers to approximately 200 students who attend each year.

Registration for this program is required. Space is limited for graduate registrations, so we encourage signing up early. Registration will go live soon so check back often. 

Topics that are covered include:

  • Career paths and training programs available within a graduate’s area of specialization
  • Characteristics (and availability) of entry-level positions for law graduates
  • Specific skills required to excel in a particular field
  • Important issues for students to consider when seeking a summer position or first job
  • Important questions for students to ask when interviewing for a job within your field. 

Additionally, Connections offers graduates an opportunity to network with fellow graduates in a wide variety of fields and professional positions. Many alums find the event helpful for their own practice. This conference is hosted by a major Boston-area law firm each year and offers visible sponsorship opportunities for NUSL graduates, co-op employers and community members.

More than 320 grads and students attended Connections 2018 on Wednesday, April 4. Thank you to Foley Hoag for generously hosting last year's event and thank you to all of the alumni/ae who devoted their time to mentoring our students!
