LAST March 3-7, 2014, the Ateneo Law School (ALS) Career Fair graced the halls of the Ateneo Professional Schools (APS) with Puyat, Jacinto and Santos Law Firm, Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) and Castillo, Laman, Tan, Pantaleon and de Santos Law Firm as the three major partners of the event.
Even before the actual career fair, the Student Council organized an intimate Law School Mixer, held last February 28, to jumpstart career week. The mixer was attended by a number of lawyers to initiate and foster camaraderie with the graduating students of ALS.
Each of the partner firms and the OSG were provided their respective booths at the entrance of the APS building. This provided students an opportunity to submit their internship applications and granted the firms a chance to recruit soon-to-be law graduates of the Ateneo.
A series of career-related talks were opened for different year levels namely: the Career Discernment Workshop, Firm Promotions Talks (OSG, PJS and Castillo), Business in Law Talk and the Judicial Mind elective talk on possible careers in the judiciary.
The aim of the project is to give students, more importantly the graduating seniors, a glimpse of their paths soon travelled—allowing them to view a wide array of career choices and tracks of the different fields of the legal profession—which, would best make them flourish as Atenean lawyers.
