Coffee Conversations is a series of great monthly guests working in the law and other related fields sharing their stories with you. They are an informal and relaxed opportunity to converse with professionals who have had interesting lives and careers.

Regardless of what you do beyond university, good conversational skills are critical to learning, generating opportunities, and social fluency. Conversations are integral to effective communication, to relationships and to the exchange of thoughts and ideas. Through conversations, we collaborate, resolve conflict, and create new possibilities.

So come along for a free cup of coffee to meet wonderful people and practice your conversational skills with them and each other. Note - Coffee Conversations are not presentations.  Students are expected to show interest and be curious, actively listen, and respect others.  

Stay tuned for news of the conversation guests, and monthly dates.
