estimated 18 attorneys and at least that many students will participate
in the ISBA Rural Practice Committee’s first "meet and greet” event on
Friday, Jan. 9. The event will provide an opportunity for rural
practitioners who are interested in hiring a clerk for the summer, or a
full-time associate, to interview a number of interested students at the
bar headquarters in Des Moines.
format will allow all students to meet with all attorneys for a brief
meet and greet, although organizers plan to do some preliminary matching
of students with attorneys based on the areas of the state the students
have designated they’d like to work in.
meet and greet portion of the event will run from 2 – 4 p.m., with a
reception following. The reception will allow attorneys to follow up
with students they are interested in visiting with further. The same
will be true for students who want to follow up with attorneys.
information about the committee’s summer clerkship program can be found
on the Rural Practice Committee’s page on The ISBA website. Go to
"Committees” under "Member Groups” at the top of the home page, then
