DePaul’s Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center
hosted Roger White
from White Scott & White, for an
informal discussion on life as a family law attorney. White provided
nearly 20 students with practical advice on the best courses to
enroll in during law school, tactics when interviewing for family law
jobs, and other methods for obtaining success, such as working hard
and adapting to new opportunities. White's guidance, which included
advice on practicing as an attorney and for working with family
clients, was useful for all students, regardless of whether they
choose to pursue family law.
White ended his
presentation with an anecdote about how a lawyer can go above and
beyond to impact his community and client. He talked about how family law attorneys can be essential to their clients' overall well-being
as well as the myriad of responsibilities that lawyers have in this role.
Students enjoyed the presentation and stayed after to ask
him questions about this practice area.
