The University of Tulsa College of Law and the Tulsa Minority Networking Taskforce are partnering again to provide law students a chance to network with a wide range of area legal professionals.
The two groups will co-host Speed Networking, an event that will allow up to 50 law students to meet 50 legal professional during the two-hour event.
The event will take place September 24 in the Gallery Room of the Allen Chapman Activity Center, 440 S. Gary Ave. Registration for the event will open at 5:00 p.m. All participants must be registered and seated by 5:30 p.m.
Much like speed dating programs, where two singles sit across a table from one another for a short introduction, Speed Networking will place a law student across from a legal professional for a short conversation. After the introductions are complete, a reception will allow the new acquaintances to follow up with new connections.
“Professional networking during the law school years can be a major step toward a successful career,” said Janet Levit, dean of the TU College of Law. “We are proud to work with the Tulsa Minority Networking Taskforce to open this program to our second- and third-year students.”
The Tulsa Minority Networking Taskforce is made up of Tulsa-area practicing lawyers. It sponsors networking events primarily aimed at providing law students opportunities to become more visible and more successful members of the Tulsa legal community.
Due to limited space, students should contact Heather Rahhal, associate director for law alumni relations, at (918) 631-3320 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve one of 50 available spaces.
Among the TU alumni scheduled to attend are:

Judge Linda Morrissey, District Judge, Tulsa county District Court,
Linda Crook Martin, Partner, Doerner, Saunders, Daniel and Anderson, LLP,
Selim Fiagome, U.S. Federal Public Defenders Office in Tulsa.
