Description:
With an ever changing and evolving legal market, it makes sense to look broadly.  Non-profit organizations have long had an important part to play in the legal marketplace, particularly in public interest areas. That said, what practice areas are particularly important to these organizations today? Are entry level opportunities available? What types of preparation are preferred? Hear from practitioners at large and smaller legal non-profits and about their transitions to this work.
