Now in its 18th year, the Tufts Lawyers Association invites alumni to the annual Law Day on the Hill, a partnership with Tufts Career Center, taking place on Thursday, February 27.

The evening begins with a light dinner and panel discussion focusing on current issues in constitutional law and election law. The evening wraps up with plenty of time for students and alumni to speak one-on-one in more detail about their careers, law school, and other applicable topics.

Law Day is an opportunity for alumni to share career journeys and experiences with students, including but not limited to the process of applying to law school and insight into being a law student. Students have shared that the connections they form at this program are helpful while navigating their undergraduate years.
