About the Project

The Alyne Queener Massey Law Library, in conjunction with the Law School’s Career Services department, will host its second annual Prepare to Practice series during the spring 2015 semester.  The week-long series of lectures and workshops teach advanced skills and concepts to further prepare law students beyond the school’s curriculum to enter the professional world.  The inaugural series will be held March 24-28, 2014 and is focused on professionalism, ethics, and practical legal research skills. In preparation for the 2015 Prepare to Practice series, Ashely worked with library staff to develop a theme for 2015 and create strategic marketing initiative that captured the spirit of the series;  analyzed the advertising methods used in 2014 to find better methods of reaching out to the law school student body; created a web page for informational and archival purposes; and developed sessions around unique topics and areas of interest that did not duplicate the law school curriculum or other VLS-sponsored programs.
