The University of Miami School of Law’s UNetworking initiative provides students the opportunity to meet and speak one-on-one with attorneys and judges from the local Miami community. The importance of networking cannot be overemphasized. UNetworking affords our students a unique and meaningful experience to speak to judges and attorneys in an informal setting. Student UNetworking chairs work closely with the AskUs team to organize several UNetworking events throughout the year and several Miami Law students have landed internships and jobs from their attendance at UNetworking events. We are grateful to L.A.F.A.C. for their finanical support of these wonderful UNetworking programs. The annual UNetworking events include:
Breakfast with the Bench
"Always a pleasure being with bright, interested young students. I always learn something from it. I look forward to doing it again if called upon.”- Hon. Paul C. Huck, Attended Breakfast with the Bench
“I would be delighted to attend this breakfast. I enjoyed the breakfast last year and actually met a law student who ultimately ended up interning for me.” - Hon. Thomas Logue, Attended Breakfast with the Bench
“I'm just writing to let you know that I got an internship for a judicial internship this summer with a judge I met at the Breakfast with the Bench event. I can't thank you enough for putting together that event. I hope you guys keep doing it!” –Matt Keilson, Attended Breakfast with the Bench
At Breakfast with the Bench, students have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with state and federal judges in South Florida to learn more about judicial internships and postgraduate clerkships. Breakfast with the Bench is open to all 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs on a first-come, first-serve basis (events fill up, so RSVP quickly), and is free for students to attend. We host Breakfast with the Bench once in the Fall semester and once in the Spring semester. For information, please email email@example.com.
