    With so many types of law out there, how do you figure out the right fit for you? Often the best way to start is by speaking with different kinds of lawyers for some insight into their respective practices - and we are pleased to bring you an interactive evening to do just that!

    On registration, you will be asked to select 3 practice areas of interest. During the event, you will then be rotating through 3 informal conversations groups led by lawyers practicing in each of your chosen areas. Come with your questions, as this will be a great opportunity to ask anything you're curious to know. Please click here to register.

    All are welcome, and in particular law students, articling students, junior lawyers, and anyone else looking to explore their options.
