Ever Thought About a Legal Career? BLS Legal Panel, April 8th

One of my roles as an Undergraduate Career Adviser is to provide guidance to students who are considering law school and a future career in law.  This amazing field  can take your business career in many interesting directions — corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, patent law, commercial litigation, IPOs, to name a few!  The Babson Law Society (BLS) is an undergraduate student organization, advised by Professor Richard Mandel, which brings together fellow undergraduate students who are considering legal careers.  With a membership of over 30 students, I asked BLS President, Sheena George, to write a guest post regarding BLS’ Alumni Legal Panel this week.  Hope to see you there!

BLS Sheena GeorgeOn April 8th, BLS will be hosting 5 alumni who work in various areas of the legal landscape, including a current JD candidate. The event will begin with an overview of each alum’s work and background followed by a Q&A session.  Our panelists include:

Alexandra Mansfield, JD Candidate at Boston College Law School

Kathryn Szewczyk ’11, JD from Suffolk University Law School, Associate at  Bowditch & Dewey, LLP

Victor Valente ’89, JD from New England School of Law, Corporate Business Controls Analyst at IBM

Amanda Kemp ’95, JD from Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law, Sole Practitioner

Stacy Munroe ’01, JD from Suffolk University Law School, Director & Corporate Counsel at Hologic, Inc.

The Babson Law Society was started to guide our fellow students who are considering a future career as an attorney.  We believe that the mentorship of our alumni, as well as that of our professors, is valuable in gaining a well-rounded understanding of what it means to pursue a law degree.
