National Law Student Convention

25th Annual National Law Student Convention at the
2012 Christian Legal Society National Conference

October 18-21, 2012

The National Law Student Convention provides law students and pre-law students from around the country the opportunity to meet others seeking to discern their callings and become faithful Christ followers in the legal profession. This year’s Law Student Convention features a mentoring luncheon, breakout sessions with practicing lawyers and scholars, a sharing time, and an introduction to the national ministry of CLS. And, as always, the evenings will be full of student-designed events like the annual Student Ministries After-Hours and Praise & Worship.  

The breakout sessions will include the following topics:

    • Career Options Panel: Integrating Faith & Practice
    • Go + Do: Daring to Change the World One Story at a Time
    • Women in the Law Panel
    • Vanderbilt University Stories: Advice & Trials in Engaging the University for Christ
    • Integrating Faith and Law
