Build Your Lawyering Toolbox Workshop Series

The Advocacy Programs are pleased to present the “Build Your Lawyering Toolbox” Workshop Series. The Lawyering Toolbox is an eight-part workshop series in which participating law students will learn about and develop strategies, soft skills, and techniques necessary for success in their upcoming legal clerkships, internships, externships, and field placements. Students that attend all eight sessions will receive an Affidavit of Completion to put on a résumé.

The 2023 Lawyering Toolbox series is open to all students currently enrolled at LSU Law and SULC. All of the sessions will be held in the McKernan Auditorium. Sign-ups are not required, simply attend each of the programs. (Note that attendance at all 7 programs is required in order to receive the Affidavit of Completion.)
