Dear ALSA 1Ls,
Congratulations on making it more than halfway through the semester! We know it is a stressful time of the year so we hope these Care Packages will bring a little happiness to your day. Enclosed, you will find various ALSA goodies, candy, and merchandise. Jamie Shinn and Chen Sheng will be in touch soon to distribute these to you!
In the midst of your studying, make sure you do not neglect your 1L summer job search. Many first-year students miss out on valuable 1L diversity opportunities. As your academic work should remain your number one priority, we wanted to make things a little easier for you by including various law firm brochures and information regarding a few 1L diversity programs. This Care Package is sponsored by Cooley LLP, Latham & Watkins LLP, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP. These top law firms have long standing diversity programs and are eager to meet highly-motivated and diverse students. For more opportunities, please refer to the CPDC 1L Diversity Fellowship Information Sheet.
Remember, there is absolutely no need to stress about the 1L job hunt! Many do not begin the process until after their final exams and everyone finds a job. We merely hope to inform you of a few opportunities before you begin looking in December.
We look forward to seeing you at our future ALSA events, and never hesitate to reach out to us with further questions. We are here to help!
The ALSA Board
