This week at Mizzou Law on Monday, October 14th at 1:00 in the Courtroom, we will host the Floyd R. Gibson Judicial Clerkship Forum. This annual event is an opportunity to learn about what judicial clerks do, as well as what judges look for in successful clerkship candidates. U.S. Magistrate Judge David Noce (’69), Missouri Supreme Court Judge Paul Wilson (’92), and their current law clerks will speak with students and answer questions about this prestigious career avenue. Be sure to RSVP through Symplicity. A brief reception with refreshments will follow the program in the Courtroom. Professional Perspectives and Career Component credit will be available!
On Wednesday, October 16th, a group of ten students will be going to Springfield, MO to learn and network! The students will attend the Springfield Bar Association regular lunch CLE program entitled “Right to Counsel: Missouri Attorney General,” followed by visits to two local law firms. The Career Development Office has been arranging several small-group trips, so be sure to check Symplicity as we post more opportunities to network in various locations throughout the state. This trip to Springfield is full, as these small-group trips have limited space and fill up very quickly, so be sure to RSVP as soon as the trips are posted.
The event “Public Service: Federal Employer Panel” scheduled also for Wednesday, October 16th was canceled due to the furloughs in the government and has been rescheduled for January 29th.
On Friday, October 18th, the mandatory 1L Boot Camp Kick Off will begin at 4:30 pm in Room 7. Students will have a brief presentation on Mix and Mingling and then rotate through three different panels of attorneys. The panels are designed to assist students in learning more about the different practice areas and work environments available in law. Afterwards, there will be a reception with attorneys in the Law School Library.
