More than 40 law students and lawyers attended the Fall Networking Event at Slate on Thursday, October 20.  Students from Rutgers, Brooklyn, Columbia, New York Law School, and Cardozo were there, along with a mix of lawyers in private practice and the public sector.  Thanks to Irene Tan and Jonathan Li for putting it together! And thanks to Liza Sohn, Student Outreach Committee Co-Chair for the wonderful photos.
