Beginning April 6, as a part of diversity week, join the Center for Career Development at 10 a.m. in the faculty dining room for a series of workshops designed to help students explore the complex relationships that exist between lawyers, clients, co-workers and community. Join us on:

  • Tuesday, April 6– learn how GLBT client issues can arise in the workplace and how to handle them in a professional manner.
  • Wednesday, April 7– discuss how your ability to relate to your co-workers of a different generation and potentially different background can impact your career.
  • Thursday, April 8– participate in a workshop designed to assist you in recognizing and responding to client diversity.

Finally, to bring diversity week to a close, immediately following Thursday’s workshop, attend the Multicultural Fair from 11a.m.-1p.m. in the law school courtyard, organized by Student Affairs and UF Law’s diverse student organizations. Travel “around the world” enjoying and celebrating law school’s cultural fabric with food and games. We hope you will participate in this series and gain an understanding of how diversity in the legal profession impacts both you and your career.
