Inspired by the likes of Oprah, Ellen and Geraldo, this show features a group of Reed Smith attorneys who will be dishing on what it's like to be an associate at our firm.  While security will be keeping the fist fights and drama to a minimum, we'll instead up the intrigue factor via honest, real-life experience sharing from RS attorneys at several different seniority levels - newbie, junior and mid-level.  You'll walk away in-the-know on the latest Reed Smith lowdown, including:

-   What exactly do we do here?
-   Pro bono experiences
-   RS collegiality/culture
-   Mentoring/guidance from senior attorneys
-   Professional development opportunities

We look forward to having you join us for this opportunity to learn more about our organization straight from the associates' mouths.  Is it all just heaRSay?  You be the judge.
