Campus to Career is an award-winning professional development conference that is primarily for first-year law students but is open to all students. It meets students where they are, professionally and personally, and is timed to occur at the beginning of a full-time student’s second semester when they have finished the difficult business of academically transitioning to law school are now at a place where they can transition professionally to the law school experience.

The Planning Committee is seeking proposals for 60 or 70-minute Competency-Centered Break-Out Sessions from Stetson University College of Law full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, staff, alumni, and members of our legal community. Up to 15 concurrent sessions will be selected.

The 2020 Campus to Career Conference will focus on the following competencies

  1. Resilience

  3. Professional Identity Development
  4. Decision-making
  5. Planning
  6. Civility
  7. Self-assessment
  8. Mentoring

The Committee welcomes proposals that focus on each of the above competencies but has identified several focused topics that reflect specific needs on our campus at this time. We encourage proposals that would address the below themes, all of which align with the framework of the above competencies:

  • Using social media in a professional manner
  • Helping students who “fell into law school” identify their professional goals
  • Providing students with perspective on their first semester (it doesn’t define them or their future)
  • Forming an authentic professional identity
