Legal Career Paths – Great American Cities
The University of New Hampshire School of Law’s new Great American Cities program, which launched in 2012, has brought alumni back to the school to discuss with students what it's like to live and work in selected destination cities around the country.
Events so far have focused on the cities of Boston and Philadelphia. In January, Boston-based alums Betsy Burkhard ’06, an associate at Holland & Knight, and Austin Wang ’06, who works in-house at Procter and Gamble, talked with students over lunch and later during individualized interviews.
In March, students heard from Philadelphia-based alums Christopher I. Halliday JD/MIP '99, a partner at Morgan Lewis, John Gregory Jr. JD '88, general counsel for Streamlight Inc., and Christiane Schuman Campbell JD/MIP '05, an associate at Duane Morris LLP.
“The purpose of the Great American Cities Program is to connect alumni with the school and current students, and to connect our students with the broad range of geographic and career options open to them,” says Donna Miller, UNH Law’s assistant dean for Career Services.
The program is co-sponsored by the school’s Career Services and Institutional Advancement Departments. The next Great American Cities event will take place early in the fall semester. To suggest a city, please email Mary Sheffer, director of Alumni Relations, or Donna Miller, assistant dean for Career Services.
