In Case You Missed It: Lambda Reception Recap

2014 April 11
by gwlawcareers

The 2014 Lambda Reception took place on Wednesday, March 26th in the law school lobby.  This year’s reception was a wonderful event, which featured representatives from 45 legal employers, including area law firms, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations.  Over 240 students registered for the event from all nine DC-area law schools and from law schools around the country.  This year, our special guest was the Honorable Todd Hughes, Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the first openly gay judge on a federal circuit court.  In lieu of official remarks, Judge Hughes opted for being interviewed by Professor Roger Schechter, and provided insightful reflections on his career and words of inspiration for current law students.  If you didn’t make it to the reception this year, we encourage you to look out for it next spring.  We hope to see you there!
