UGA LAW SCHOOL NAMES NEW ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF LEGAL CAREER SERVICES

Athens, Ga. - Anthony (Tony) E. Waller of Rockville, Maryland was recently hired as assistant director of legal career services for the University of Georgia School of Law. His primary responsibilities will be career counseling, in which he will aid students with their entire job search process. Waller will oversee the law school's innovative PREPARE program, which provides students with career mentoring, opportunities to "shadow" professionals, informational forums, and mock interviews. He will also assist in the coordination of job fairs.

Waller is no stranger to the University of Georgia School of Law, having earned his law degree from UGA in 1993. He was previously employed in Germantown, Maryland for two years at AXIOM Systems, Inc. as a recruiter/human resources director, where he was responsible for all recruitment, hiring, placement and other human resource activities for the specialty consulting firm. He also worked in Silver Springs, Maryland at Linowes and Blocher, LLP as an associate, representing landowners and corporations in land use cases and lobbying efforts.

"With Tony on board, Legal Career Services will be able to offer double the career consulting staff, enabling increased one-on-one career assistance to students and alumni of the law school," said Beth Kirch, director of legal career services. "Tony will enable us to enhance our support of students seeking a variety of legal positions, including public interest, government, small firm and non-traditional employment."
