The American College of Employee Benefits Counsel Announces Program To Connect Law Students With ACEBC Members Regarding The Employee Benefits Practice Area

The American College of Employee Benefits Counsel (“ACEBC”) is excited to announce its program to connect interested law students with ACEBC members for purposes of asking questions about employee benefits as a practice area. Law students can find out what day-to-day practice is like from an experienced employee benefits attorney. It’s a challenging and enjoyable practice areas.

For details of the program, visit the website.

If a law student is interested in talking with an ACEBC member about employee benefits practice, the law student should send an email with name, law school, email address, and phone number. The law student may specify interest in a particular type of practice, such as in-house, government, law firm, not for profit, or teaching. The information will be passed to an ACEBC member who will contact the law student. The ACEBC member has agreed to one email exchange or telephone exchange about the area that the student has selected (although, of course, the student and volunteer may agree to more discussions). Also, the discussion with the volunteer is intended as informational only—it is not a job interview, and students should not use the Law Student Outreach as a vehicle for seeking employment by contacting members.

The website also includes information about a student writing contest which will be of interest to this same group of law students. The writing competition has been successful in many ways but one measure is that several of the competitors have gone on to practice employee benefit law after their graduation from law school.
