Live with Kellye & Ken: Careers in Law

Careers in Law

Legal education prepares students for a wide variety of careers. Because the defining accomplishment of JD education has been its ability to foster critical thinking and creative problem-solving, graduates have been outstanding contributors in helping navigate change and complexity for a wide range of organizations and causes. In addition to the JD degree, many law schools now also offer a range of additional degree and certificate programs to foster learning in law, in both residential and blended formats. This panel discussion highlights the wide variety of careers that education in law through one or more of these programs can facilitate, and the employment outlook for various career options.

Deans Emeritus Kellye Testy (LSAC CEO) and Ken Randall (iLaw President) led this live dialogue about careers in law. Joining the discussion were:

  • Dean Benjamin Barros, Toledo
  • Dean Mary Lu Bilek, CUNY
  • Dean Dan Hamilton, Nevada
  • Dean Melanie Leslie, Cardozo
  • James Leipold, National Association for Law Placement (NALP)

This engaging one-hour discussion included a Q&A period at the end.
