At Colorado Law, we believe that learning how to be an effective professional is just as important as learning the law. 

To foster our students' professional preparedness and sense of professionalism, we have developed the Colorado Law Professionalism "How To" Spring Series.  Each session in the series focuses on a different skill necessary for a successful professional future and provides a supportive environment for students to ask questions, increase their competencies, and connect with valuable professional resources. 

The Spring 2014 "How To" sessions include:

  • How to Find Your Passion and Look Beyond Grades (January 16, 2014)
  • How to Network and Build Professional Relationships (January 30, 2014)
  • Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Workplace (March 6, 2014)
  • How to Market Yourself and Define Your Value Proposition (March 14. 2014)
  • How to Suceed in Your 1L Summer (April 17, 2014)

In 2013, Heather Jarvis, a nationally renowned student loan expert, presented a session titled "How To Make Smart Loan & Debt Management Choices." She provided valuable strategies for borrowing and paying back your student loans. The following links were included in Heather's powerpoint presentation and should be helpful references as you make borrowing and repayment decisions.

3Ls in particular will also benefit from reading Heather's recent article,"Student Loan Timeline for Graduating Students."
