The Indiana University Maurer School of Law's fall Career Choices series kicks off Thursday with a focus on using a law degree to work in the federal government.
Baker & Daniels attorney Suzanne O'Shea, who practices in health care and life sciences initiatives, will answer questions from a moderator and attendees about working in the federal government with a law degree. O'Shea worked for 21 years as a regulatory counsel for the Food and Drug Administration, as a product classification officer in the Office of Combination Products, and as regulatory counsel in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. O'Shea is a 1978 graduate of the law school.
The session is from noon to 1 p.m. in Room 213 at the law school in Bloomington and is open to the public. Indiana law students need to RSVP because pizza will be provided to students.
This is the first of several sessions focusing on alternative legal careers. The series started in the spring in response to the tough job market and economy. Future scheduled sessions include family law/mediation, prosecutors, and legal aid/public defenders.
