The Tufts Lawyers Association invites students, alumni, parents and friends to the 20th annual Law Day on the Hill, a partnership with Tufts Career Center, taking place virtually on Thursday, March 10, 2022.

The evening begins with initial introductions and a panel discussion focusing on current issues in criminal law and procedure. The discussion will include panelists sharing their experiences and insights on policy and practical issues related to criminal law.  The evening wraps up with plenty of time for all to speak 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 the process of applying to law school, insight into being a law student, and the rewards and challenges of practicing law.  At past events, many students have enjoyed the connections they form at this program and found them to be helpful while navigating their undergraduate years.

The panel discussion will include Q&A and will be followed by networking in breakout rooms.
