Question:
Bruna Conceicao
01:00:45
How does a first year law student stand out and get introduced to this field? Most jobs are looking for people with experience, and I find it extremely hard to find the first opportunity.
Scott Bauer
01:00:51
Question 3: A company’s business and tech can be specific and niche. Any strategies to prepare for an interview for a JD+ role (risk, compliance, IP, etc.)? Thank you!
Bruna Conceicao

Without a solid tech or privacy background, how important is the Cipp certification to attorneys?
Mary Beal - NALP
01:03:04
Question: To flip the tables, what are the technical skills or knowledge that lawyers should have to succeed in privacy or tech laws?
Michael Kallman
01:03:04
Great. So there are so many jobs out there and there is such a need. But, how do you go about getting these opportunities? I have an MBA and now I have a JD as well and I am not getting any interviews no less offers. I try and network whenever possible and I attend events such as this and nothing seems to help. So what advice can you give to someone who has faced every roadblock possible and can’t seem to get a foot in the door no less a leg up?
Jana Matthews
01:03:09
Are there any Industry specific organizations like IAPP that you can recommend for current JD students to look into becoming members of or to learn more about things to help prepare them to secure opportunities in these areas?
Mariana Mendoza
01:04:50
A question for Lauren - have you felt that passing the patent bar was a barrier to any opportunities or is experience more important?
Laura Santiago
01:17:14
What is your recommendation for those of us that are non-traditional students? I.e Law is a second career and have a family, etc.
Bud (he/his) Richmond Law
01:17:27
When you were applying for and accepting positions early in your careers, what value did you place on the people who would be your direct supervisors? (e.g., did their experiences, attitudes, visions, etc outweigh some traditional considerations of your law-bound peers because you were sort of mapping to your destination in real-time?)
Arneda Perkins
01:22:38
Do you expect opportunities to work remotely will continue?
Irina Gomelskaya, NYLS
01:22:55

These non-traditional paths are non-linear, which seems exciting but a bit unstable! What are things you all do or have in your life which keep you grounded?
Kathleen Quinn
01:50:33
I had an interview experience where, at the end, I asked the two people from the firm what made them excited to work at that firm, and one of them said "I take issue with the fact that you think lawyers are happy at their jobs." What do you think would have been an appropriate response for me to give to that answer?
Rick Klau
01:54:31
@Kathleen: that’s a pretty big red flag. I don’t think it’s too much to ask to enjoy the work you do, to feel a strong connection to the mission… if someone at the firm - *in an interview* - is telling you that’s missing, I’d want to really dig in and understand whether that was an aberration, or representative of the firm more broadly.
