“Get on Track” Series Part I: Getting on the Partnership Track

Co-sponsored by Career Placement Committee, Young Lawyers Committee and Membership Committee
Date and Time: Thursday September 11, 2014 | 6:30pm-9:00pm
Location: Dechert LLP | 1095 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10036-6797

Program Description:

Working hard, being responsive and getting things right are necessary to get on the partnership track, but are no longer sufficient to stay on the partnership track. The goals of this 90-minute roundtable discussion are to identify (1) the soft skills that APA associates or associates in general lack in order to be seriously considered for partnership, (2) the political landscape and stereotypes within law firms that work for and against APA associates in particular, and (3) ways to overcome these hurdles and challenges so that APA associates have a better chance to make partner in the post-financial crisis world.
