Blakes Student Committee

The Student Committee at Blakes seeks to create a fulfilling student program. The committee is composed of the Director of Legal Personnel & Professional Development, associates and partners at the Firm who are all involved in creating and developing a comprehensive professional development program, recruiting, planning and executing social events, and fostering a culture of learning.
