"My two business degrees from LSSU were instrumental in preparing me to work at all levels of Edison Sault Electric (ESE), concluding with the privilege of becoming ESE President in 1998. My company also takes pride in that 14 out of a total of 17 management personnel and about 20% of hourly employees at ESE either have degrees from or have attended a substantial number of classes at LSSU. Finally, our company and employees have contributed in excess of $500,000 to various LSSU projects over the last 25 years. ESE Believes in Blue."

Careers*
   

Attorney — Quite simply, attorneys practice law. What that means depends upon the legal (or non-legal) work environment that one ultimately chooses, along with the area(s) of law in which one practices. The opportunities are endless given the various work environments and the numerous areas of law in which one can specialize. For instance, lawyers practice within private law practices; public interest groups; governmental agencies (federal, state, tribal or local); courts; business and industry (e.g., insurance companies, financial institutions, corporations, hospitals, public relation firms, political campaigns, labor unions, and trade associations); academics (as a law professor, law librarian or administrator); or in various non-legal careers such as the media, law enforcement, business, public relations, foreign service, or politics. In addition, within many of these varied work environments, there are numerous areas of law in which one may specialize.

  • Trial Lawyer
  • Corporate Counsel
  • Prosecuting Attorney
  • Judge or Magistrate
  • Law School Professor or Administrator
