This panel discussion will demystify the role the first few years after graduation play in the arc of a legal career. Is Big Law the best place to get professional legal training? What are the tradeoffs (financial and otherwise) involved in choosing private or public sectors? Is starting in the private or public sector the best way to keep professional options open?
The varied perspectives and paths of our panelists will provide more transparent information for students to consider when making decisions between different lines of work. We will be joined by three panelists who each come from different career trajectories spanning public interest organizations, Big Law, and government: Adelina Acuña (JD ‘12), CA Deputy AG, Consumer Law Section; Sanjay Narayan, Managing Attorney at Sierra Club (Climate Law instructor at SLS); and Max Carter-Oberstone (JD ‘14), Senior Associate at Orrick, currently on a Racial Justice Fellowship at the Policing Project.
Co-hosted by Energy & Infrastructure Club, Environmental Law Society, National Lawyers Guild, Stanford Human Rights Law Association, Stanford Advocates for Immigrants’ Rights, and the Law & Political Economy Project.
