WITA Academy’s Newest Initiative!

Pathways to Opportunity Series: Careers in International Trade & Law

– Online and In-Person –

Hosted at WITA sponsor locations, law schools, universities, and online via Zoom

The WITA Academy has launched a new Pathways to Opportunity Program on Careers in International Trade & Law. Law students and undergraduates will hear from law firms and trade professionals about career opportunities in international trade and law.

WITA Academy Pathways programs seek to bring the best and brightest, next generation workforce into the trade policy community – diversifying its network of professionals with new talent that may not have previously sought careers in international trade. 

This new initiative features both virtual and in-person events in Washington, DC, with sessions on public and private sector career pathways. The series is geared towards pre-law and law students.

This series launched with an in-person event hosted at the Georgetown University Law Center on April 10. Summer in-person networking socials will be hosted at sponsor firms to connect law students, summer associates, and trade professionals in downtown DC. The Fall in-person event will be hosted at Howard University School of Law on September 10.

There will be two additional virtual programs in 2024 for law schools across the United States.

All programs will be free to attend for interested students.
