In the midst of an economic downturn, thoughtful career planning is a must and more information is helpful in formulating a career plan. This panel will explore the career path and planning process for four successful attorneys. What prepared them for a career practicing intellectual property law? What was the role of networking in leading to their current position? What advice do they have for students and attorneys in building a career? How did they find success and fulfillment in the practice of law? We hope to answer these questions and others during the panel discussion.

This Webcast is Complimentary
