CHRO Connects: UConn Law Externship Fair

On Monday October 6, 2014, CHRO Human Rights Attorney David Kent and Investigator Michael Roberts attended an Externship Fair hosted by the UConn School of Law. The purpose of this event was to give students of the law school an opportunity to meet externship sponsors, both from the private and public sectors, and learn about some potential locations to gain practical legal experience. Also in attendance were former externs, some recently graduated, who could give the students some guidance based on their own first-hand experiences. The event was largely organized by Professor Jennifer Mailly, the Exernship Director at UConn Law. Attorney Kent and Investigator Roberts met with many students who expressed an interest in civil and human rights, several of whom will likely apply for externships with the CHRO in the Spring and Summer.
