How do you become a lawyer? What should you know or do now to smooth the road to legal practice? How do skills and knowledge from undergraduate studies translate to the work of a practising lawyer?

This roundtable will bring together five early-career lawyers working in various legal specializations and different practice environments. They will offer their experiences in navigating the professional transition from Concordia student to lawyer – its challenges, its obstacles, its rewards.
