were fortunate to have our very own David Perlman, himself a former Chair of
this Section, speak on behalf of our Section, answer the many eager questions

event was attended by approximately 30 students (1-L and 3-L) and several NYSBA
David, personally spoke with about half a dozen students of different
backgrounds on a variety of topics of interest to them, including the reasons
they wanted to be lawyers and what being an in-house lawyer was really like
(especially freedom from the tyranny of time sheets).
Corporate Counsel Section looks forward to participating in more events with
the younger members of our profession, and encourages our more experienced
colleagues of our Section to become more involved with them, either through
mentoring, providing mentorships or even, just like David, sharing a little
wisdom from time to time. If you are interested, please contact our
Section Liaison and she will be happy to get you more involved.
