As Kinney Recruiting has done for years, we are again happy to help out the Chinese Business Lawyers Association with their upcoming career panel event at Columbia Law School. If you are interested in lateraling to HK / China in the future and have the time to attend the event on Monday, October 29, we can easily recommend it. The CBLA career panel events over the years have been quite informative to both law students and associates who attend. Evan Jowers will be participating on the upcoming panel and will also be available in New York most of Oct. 29 ad 30 for meetings with associates interested in moving to Asia. Feel free to reach out at [email protected] to arrange a meeting with Evan or simply come to the CBLA event and meet with Evan there.
