Networking Events:

Each year PCD organizes several networking events to help students engage with the large number of attorneys in the greater Chicago area. Examples of our networking events include:

  • Speed Networking Receptions: Held in fall, these events bring together students interested in developing a business/corporate practice and attorneys practicing in these areas of law. Events vary from year to year, and in past years have included a corporate transactional event and a corporate compliance event.
  • Notable Alumni Lunches: Every semester, PCD brings in distinguished alumni to meet with our students over an informal lunch so that students are able to connect with our alumni network in a small group setting.
