Law Student Outreach
In order to further outreach efforts to law students, the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel ("ACEBC") has adopted a program to connect interested law students with willing ACEBC members for purposes of asking questions about employee benefits as a practice area.
Are you a law student? The ACEBC Law Student Outreach provides connections to law students to help foster interest in employee benefits as a practice area. We connect interested law students with ACEBC members. Find out what day-to-day practice is like from an experienced employee benefits attorney. It's a challenging and enjoyable practice area -- we'll share what we've learned and answer your questions.
How to get connected: If you are a law student interested in talking with an ACEBC member about employee benefits practice, send us an email with your name, law school, email address, and phone number. Feel free to specify if you are interested in a particular type of practice, such as in-house, government, law firm, not for profit, or teaching. Your information will be passed to an ACEBC member who will contact you. By contacting you, the member has agreed to one email exchange or telephone exchange about the area that you have selected (although, of course, you and your volunteer may agree to more discussions). Also, the discussion with the volunteer is intended as informational only—it is not a job interview, and you should not use the Law Student Outreach as a vehicle for seeking employment by contacting members.
ACEBC members who want to learn more about the program and may be interested in making themselves available to share information about what day-to-day practice is like should click here.
Law Professors and others who want to post a notice describing the Law Student Outreach can download a poster that the ACEBC has created for this purpose. Here is a PDF of the poster.
