Location: Los Angeles, CA
On March 6, 2019, Mintz will host “Lawyer for a Day” in its Los Angeles office. During the event, middle schoolers from New Los Angeles Charter, a Title One school, will gain a first-hand impression of what lawyers do and whether they could see themselves doing the same thing.
Mintz will offer the students the ability to participate in interactive learning activities to understand how the legal system works and the role that different types of lawyers play. Some of the firm’s lawyers will give brief presentations about their career trajectory and life as in-house counsel with a Q&A session at the end.
A number of distinguished guests will also be on hand, including: Cindy Perry, GC at Brandable LA; Camilla Eng, GC at Laser Away; Rebecka Biejo, VP & Deputy GC at Pilgrim Media; and Brenda Galvan, Deputy District Attorney at Los Angeles District Attorney.
There will also be various breakout sessions, combining law, leadership, analytical thinking and problem-solving; and a lunch that allows the students invaluable one-on-one time with the lawyers.
