Matlock, Johnnie Cochran, Clarence Darrow, Perry Mason, John Grisham, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Hilary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth Dole, Barack and Michelle Obama are famous (fictional and real) lawyers.
Lawyers have many options over the course of their careers. Besides private practice, they can become a prosecutor, government counsel, corporate in-house counsel, judge, arbitrator, law professor or politician. Legal training is good preparation for many non-legal jobs, such as corporate executive, government administrator, investment banker, entrepreneur or journalist.
Girl Scouts in middle school and high school can explore what it takes to be a lawyer with a young, female attorney. A new series pathway focused on legal careers is starting, and we want girls to shape this group. June 22, girls will meet to decide:
What activities do the girls want to do? How often do they want to meet? How do they want to communicate? What do they want to call themselves? Do they want to work on IP's? Do they want to go on trips?
Get your girls involved in this from the ground up by RSVP'ing by June 21 to Molly Smart at extension 1402.
When: 4 - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 22
Where: Volunteer Center, Mobile
RSVP by: June 21
