Employer in Residence
The Employer in Residence program brings employers to GW Law to meet informally with students. During the fall 2019 semester, Employer in Residence sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm in the "Soft Lounge" on the law school's first floor. Each week will feature one employer. Students are not required to register in advance and are encouraged to stop by any time during the two-hour window. Employers typically send a number of representatives - including both attorneys and recruiters.
