Intention and Impact SummitThe Intention and Impact Summit is an interactive, conference-style orientation designed to introduce new ways of looking at your future and ideas for building career and professional competencies. We invite all 1L and 2L students to join us for a day of sessions aimed at helping you chart your law school path. With so many opportunities out there, it can be difficult to navigate your way. The summit is a space to learn and explore the many ways you can find success as a law student, both in and out of the classroom. Let’s be intentional about the experiences we have at Stetson and build the tools we need to make an impact as members of the legal community.
