The Ins & Outs of Law School Experiential Learning, Presented by Columbia Law School

Columbia Law School is renowned for the intellectual rigor of its curriculum and the groundbreaking scholarship of its faculty. Drawing strength from the vast interdisciplinary resources of its distinguished research university — and the global stage of New York City — Columbia students complete their legal training ready to engage the world’s most challenging issues across borders, jurisdictions, subject matters, sectors and industries.

In addition to giving attendees a deeper glimpse at Columbia's own programs, presenters will provide a deeper understanding in this session of experiential learning in law school. From clinic to summer internship/associate positions to moot court and more — attendees will learn about what these outside-the-classroom offerings tend to involve and entail, no matter which law school you choose to apply to.

Get Career Ready! Use Your Study Abroad Experience to Stand Out in the Applicant Pool

According to a study conducted by IES Abroad, “More than 75% of study abroad alumni say that their experience helped them develop communication skills, self-confidence, adaptability and cultural understanding. Furthermore, half of study abroad alumni say that studying abroad helped them to get their first job after college.” In this 2-part series, we’ll show you how to incorporate the skills you’ve learned abroad into your elevator pitch, resume, cover letters and interviews in order to stand out in an applicant pool. This event is ideal for students who have studied abroad, but open to prospective study abroad students, as well.

Part 1 on Monday, Oct. 1: Networking and Your Elevator Pitch – Led by Susan Daniels, Public Speaking Associate in the Writing Center

Part 2 on Wednesday, Oct. 3: Resumes, Cover Letters, and Interviews – Led by Laura Litwiller, Associate Director for Career Advising in the Loeb Center

*Both sessions will take place in Barrett Hall, Room 105 at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and the first ten students to attend each workshop will receive a LimeRed gift card.

Re-presenting Nonotuck: The Landscape Paintings of Hitchcock and Gloman

until Oct 29 Frost Library, Mezzanine Gallery

Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.

The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
