Fit to Practice Workshop Series

The Advocacy Programs, in conjunction with LSU Law’s Cornerstones student organization, is pleased to present FIT TO PRACTICE, a civil litigation workshop series, during the Spring 2019 semester. Open to all students, each session of this series will focus on a skill essential to the successful practice of an associate in their first three years of work in civil litigation. Every workshop will include a health and wellness de-stress program!  This series will be taught by LSU Law Center Advocacy Fellow Annie Scardulla and leading civil litigation attorneys. Students that attend all eight sessions will receive an Affidavit of Completion to put on a résumé.

All of the sessions will be held in the Auditorium at the LSU Law Center. Sign-ups are not required, simply attend each of the programs. Questions should be directed to Ms. Scardulla.
