Calling all junior associates!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn everything you need to know to succeed as an associate!

Want to know how you can you maximize your relationship with your mentor?

When should you start evaluating your professional development or participating in non-billable activities?

What can you do as an associate to begin paving your path to partnership?

Join fellow Chicago-area associates at the Chicago Committee’s 2014 Law Firm Boot Camp to learn the answers to these questions and many more! The annual Boot Camp provides valuable insight, candid advice and concrete guidance for junior associates.
