CSO Employer Outreach Section

The CSO Employer Outreach Section explores goals and best practices (including technology, long distance vs. local employer relations and visibility issues) of law school employer outreach. The group also examines the various duties of those engaged in employer outreach work. Finally, the group seeks to increase understanding on the part of legal employers as to the role of employer relations staff in the law schools and to encourage a dialogue that promotes a collaborative and mutually beneficial relationship.
