This special edition of The Path & The Practice features the audio from a summer 2022 law school recruiting event featuring a candid discussion between diverse Foley attorneys. The conversation covers what it's like to be a diverse attorney in Big Law, advice on the early days of one's legal career, and the OCI/the law firm interview process.
