With the effects of a global pandemic reverberating around the world (and in our legal community), looking for a new position or growing in your current position can feel especially overwhelming for recent graduates and seasoned attorneys alike. This new normal calls for new approaches. Whether you have just passed the bar, are looking to transition out of your current role, or are just feeling stuck, we welcome you to join this conversation. Our panel will discuss what creative strategies are available (including new recruiting innovations in this virtual age) and how to leverage the resources you have to find the best position for you.

    Last year, we held our first annual conference last year, focusing the event on the impact South Asians have had on the law and the impact the law has had on our communities. This year, we intend to build on those conversations through our second annual conference, and keep with the historic moment that we are in. Thus, we are thrilled for this year’s conference to center South Asians and Civil Rights - how our community has impacted civil rights movements, how civil rights movements have impacted us, and importantly, solidarity between marginalized communities in the fight for equality. We are thrilled to feature our two keynote panelists, Sunu Chandy of the National Women’s Law Center and Professor Swethaa Balakrishnen from U.C. Irvine School of Law, alongside an incredible group of legal scholars and practitioners who will be in attendance. The conference is free to attend for everyone. 

    Attendees seeking CLE credit must register for CLE credit and make a payment via the online CLE registration link in the amount of $120.00 ($60.00 public interest/non-profit attorneys). Penn Law Alumni receive CLE credits free through The W.P. Carey Foundation’s generous commitment to Lifelong Learning.
