Northwestern Law is currently soliciting for sponsors for our Spring Semester activities. Multiple opportunities exist, including ones great for out of town firms. Each opportunity is listed in detail below.
Loan Repayment and Financial Literacy Program
The Loan Repayment and Financial Literacy Program presents a panel of young alumni, representing different legal career paths, to discuss their successful post–graduation financial management strategies. In addition, a financial planning professional will present a seminar on loan repayment strategies followed by one–on–one counseling sessions. The panel and seminar will teach crucial skills for the long–term well–being of our students and will assist in the next steps in their legal careers.
Wellness Day Celebration
The Wellness Day Celebration is Northwestern Law's celebration of the ABA–sponsored National Mental Health Day for lawyers and law students. Multiple events will be held throughout the day, including panels on various wellness topics and yoga and meditation classes. The Wellness Day Celebration and other Northwestern Law wellness programs are designed to help students thrive in high pressure situations, to cultivate their emotional intelligence, and to provide tools to decrease stress and boost concentration.
Preparing 1Ls for Practice: Lawyer as Problem Solver
Lawyer as Problem Solver uses hands-on exercises to equip 1Ls with practice ready skills in areas such as dispute resolution, communication, ethics, teamwork and leadership. Program modules include Client Counseling and Interviewing, and Negotiation and Conflict Management. New to the agenda this year is the module, The Emotionally Intelligent Lawyer. The Sponsors' Reception is the capstone of the program and provides a wonderful forum for attorneys to network with our 1Ls in a relaxed and fun environment.
1L Networking Reception
The annual 1L Networking Reception features a brief presentation that will teach and enhance our first year students' (and your attorneys, if they need it!) professional networking capabilities. Learn the do's and don'ts of networking and then recruit your hearts out as our students are eager to learn what makes each firm different.
Martin Luther King Day Celebration and Lecture Series
Emphasize your commitment to diversity and support our MLK Day celebration. Each January, Northwestern Law and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine partner to organize a Martin Luther King Day Celebration. This event is widely attended each year by members of the Northwestern University Chicago campus community.
Join the biggest law school party of the year and highlight your interest in diversity! Global Village brings together approximately 800 students, staff, and faculty to enjoy a night of food, drink, music and entertainment. Set up as a cultural fair, over 30 tables represent different regions and countries and exhibit their unique culture and cuisine. The event is a collaborative effort between JD and LLM students, a majority of Northwestern Law student groups, and the international programs offices.
Take a Break: Exam Breaks
Get your name in front of every student at the Law School by sponsoring an exam break. During these breaks, students congregate to re–fuel with snacks and drinks, relax in a massage chair, and take a break from the stress of exams. Your name will be associated with all that is good when you sponsor an exam break.
