UCLEFSuccessfully Held Job-Landing Panel in NYU Law School
On September 27, 2010, the U.S.-China Legal Exchange Foundation (UCLEF), cooperating with NYU Law School Asia Law Society, had successfully held the job-landing panel for law students. The panel was held in NYU Law School, and the three panelists' speech was welcomed by all the student participants. The three panelists were Evan Jowers from Kinney Recruiting, Zhihui Guo from Blank Rome and George Wu from Pryor Cashman. On the panel, Evan Jowers started first by giving a thorough analysis on the current legal job market. Being a recruiter, he further pointed out the chances in the Asia legal job market and encouraged all the students to seek opportunities there. George Wu then gave the audience a case study based on his own experience, making some valuable suggestions to all the students who are going to find their first legal job in U.S. At last, Zhihui Guo shared her own insights of her career path as an LL.M. student and discussed some common problems students may encounter during their job-landing process.

The panel went cheerfully and the students participated with great enthusiasm. The participants were from several law schools in the New York City and were candidates in either LL.M. or J.D. programs. They all spoke highly of this panel. Both American and Chinese students found the information given out by panelists very useful, and they believed those talks can help them a lot in their future job-landing process. Some of the students kept on their conversation with the panelists after the panel ended, and they all expressed their wish to participate in more of UCLEF's activities.
