Research Tips for Career Networking

All of the career experts say that it's important to get out there and network. Find lawyers who work in the field you'd like to enter and ask them if they'd give you a little time for an informational interview.

Good idea. But some students have said that it's hard to find the lawyers to contact. How can they find who's doing corporate tax in Portland or what public interest groups in New England are working on environmental issues?

Don't despair: research can help! Try out our Sample Searches for Networking and Informational Interviews.

Care for a chocolate bar or other small prize? Be the first UW law person to write to the Reference Office with the phrase "research is useful" and the prize will be yours.
