SLS Student – Spring Break in Brazil

Legal Education without Limits

Taking law students where opportunities lead

There’s just so much energy and enthusiasm and intelligence at this place. People don’t just talk about problems. They find a way to fix it. They start a pro bono that’s helping veterans find jobs or helping victims of human trafficking.

Professor Easha Anand, co-director of the Stanford Law School Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, and Gareth Fowler, JD ’24, join the Stanford Legal podcasts this week for a discussion about three cases argued before the Court this term, the people behind the case titles, and what it takes to ...represent them at the highest court in the land.

Last week, the inaugural SLS Firm Expo series kicked off as SLS students met with over eighty law firm representatives from across the country (over a third of whom were SLS alumni!). The series is a fantastic opportunity for students to network with private sector attorneys, develop valuable ...contacts, and receive first hand advice on navigating the legal profession.

The 2024 Firm Expo series will wrap up on April 23 with attorneys and recruiters from over thirty five different firms, giving students the chance to further broaden their network and knowledge of the firm legal market. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
