Practitioners Share Career Advice and Insight

 

The Communications Law Students Association, Entertainment Law Society, and Intellectual Property Law Students Association joined with the Federal Communications Bar Association in hosting a career panel and networking outreach event at the law school on Feb. 16, 2012.
 
Five attorneys, including three alumni, who specialize in those fields described different aspects of their practices, shared their own career paths, and offered in-depth advice on career choices and opportunities, job searches, interviewing, and succeeding in the profession.
 
Speakers included:

Angela Kronenberg (1995, Communications Law Institute),  wireline advisor to FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, who practiced telecommunications and media law with Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP’s Washington, D.C. office for over a decade before joining the commission.
 
Jack Nadler, a partner in the communications practice of Squire Sanders, who focuses his practice on telecommunications regulation and has worked on a wide range of international and U.S.-based telecommunications projects.
