Ziffren Workshop: Litigation v. Corporate Work

On November 8, 2017, Latham & Watkins associates Robert Ellison '10 and Alison Ziffren '16 led a workshop for students of the Ziffren Center for Media, Entertainment, Technology and Sports Law on the topic, "Litigation v. Corporate: The Courtroom v. The Boardroom." Sharing observations from their personal experiences, the speakers discussed the pros and cons of working in litigation and in corporate transactional law, as well as where the two practice areas converge. Students were invited to engage in the Supplemental Practical Legal Education (SPLE) presentation and were treated to an insightfully candid question-and-answer section with the speakers.
