Career Café Leiden Law
- Monday 16 May 2022
A great opportunity to ask all your career related questions!
Are you still unsure about the exact direction you want to take within the field of law, would you like to hear more about career opportunities and would you like to meet professionals? Then come to the Career Café (formerly known as Coach Café) in the Global Lounge on Monday 16 May. Leiden Law School alumni from various sectors, positions and specialisations will be there to talk to students! Please be aware they are mainly Dutch alumni working in Dutch organisations. In three rounds and in small groups you can chat with a different alumnus. Each round lasts around 15 minutes.
This event is especially for students who are still unsure about what they want to do, who want to hear more about career opportunities, who are interested in what it’s like to work for a commercial law firm, or work in the judiciary, or how to begin a startup. The alumni we have invited are keen to answer all your questions, offer advice and share their experiences.
Information on the alumni is provided below. Please indicate on the registration form which coaches you would like to speak to most. Sign up fast via the link!
