DePaul Presents Alumnus Roger White To Discuss Family Law
DePaul law alumnus Roger White discusses family law with students.
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.
