Betsy A. Miller, Chair of Cohen Milstein’s Public Client practice, Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law School, Certified Leadership Coach, HLS ’99, and Harvard Law School (HLS) Wasserstein Fellow 2021-2022, has been invited to speak at HLS OPIA Career Event on April 7, 2022 at 12:30 p.m. EST.

Ms. Miller’s program, “The Secret Sauce for Summer Internship Success: Mastering Clear Requests,” reflects on summer internships, which are a time for law student growth and exploration, coupled with a host of unknowns about work assignments and expectations. Ms. Miller will address how to negotiate and make clear requests for work assignments while making ever-so-important “first impressions.”

During this engaging lunchtime program, Ms. Miller will also work with HLS students to reveal and test the three core ingredients of making clear requests and increasing communication skills to help clarify supervisor expectations:

  • Define the Task: What, exactly, is being asked of you?
  • Meet Delivery: When, precisely, is it due?
  • Quantify Success: What are the specific conditions of satisfaction?

This program is for HLS students only.
