For this first session of the Spring semester, CSO discussed the vocabulary for different legal sectors, trends in the legal market in hiring, and self-assessment tools. We then discussed a program called the “Right Profile” which each law student can use to get a sense of how their skills compare to other lawyers in practice and what practice areas they may fit with. Rather than taking a quiz if you missed this class, the assignment is to complete your assessment at: https://app.myrightprofile.com/start.php?Code=buffalolaw.
