WITA Academy’s Newest Initiative!
Pathways to Opportunity Series
– Online and In-Person –
Hosted at WITA sponsor locations, law schools, universities, and online via Zoom
In 2024, the WITA Academy is launching 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’s 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 will feature both virtual and hybrid events in Washington, DC. The format will be similar to other Pathways events, featuring sessions on public and private sector career pathways. The series will be geared towards pre-law and law students.
A Summer in-person networking social will be hosted to connect law students, summer associates, and young trade professionals in downtown DC.
In-person events will focus on DC-area law schools (Howard, Georgetown, GWU, American, Catholic, etc…). Virtual events will expand the program to law schools and students across the United States who might not have exposure to D.C. law firms and professionals.
All programs will be free to attend for interested students.
