  • On October 2nd, the University of Richmond School of Law will host an ASIL Speed Mentoring Panel event, described as: “a unique forum that will expose law students and new legal professionals to experienced international practitioners. The event will begin with a brief introduction of the panelists and several questions presented by D. Wes Rist, ASIL’s Director of Education and Research, designed to provide insight into professional development opportunities, as well as to illustrate the various avenues the panelists took into international legal practice. Following the group discussion, each panelist will “host” a table at which a small group of students can spend 10-12 minutes asking more personal, directed questions of the participants. Students will then be able to rotate among tables, thus having the chance to speak directly with multiple panelists.The 90-minute speed mentoring event will be followed by a networking reception from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Practitioners in the area and others who do not plan to attend the speed-mentoring event are welcome to attend the reception.  No registration is required for those attending the reception only.”
