This year the panel of speakers consisted of 3 mother/daughter attorney teams. Various issues were discussed: what it is like to be a law student, how to choose which law school would be best for you, how to balance family and a legal career, what classes you should take as an undergraduate student if you're interested in attending law school, can you have children and still make it through law school, what it is like to practice in a big firm, the many ways the skills and knowledge you obtain in law school can be used if you decide to stop practicing law or do not work outside the home.
The presentations were informative and the question and answer portion following was very helpful to those who attended. It was an exciting event for both presenters and attendees.
