Law Jobs for Humans . . . . but for which humans?

A little bit more info on our Law Jobs for Humans Event, coming up in Chicago on April 24.

 

A few weeks back we announced the first ever Law Jobs for Humans event, and the response has been overwhelming! We’ve already sold a solid percentage of our tickets (on one blog post and a couple of emails) and sponsor requests have been rolling in. The takeaway? There’s a need for this.

The speaker lineup is filling up quickly and with some amazing people. In that vein, we’re pleased to announce the following have formally signed on:
