CSO Employer Outreach
The group also examines the various duties of those engaged in employer outreach work and seeks to increase awareness and understanding among 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.
The goal of this group is to bring together colleagues who regularly counsel students and alumni to share information and develop resources to benefit NALP members. This group will also ascertain counseling practices that increase the career self-efficacy of JD students who are first generation college graduates.
