I'm a 1L and have started attending some of the various spring time seminars at the school, where local attorneys come in to speak and offer career advice, etc. I am wondering if it would be crass to send "Thank You notes" to the attorneys after their seminar. I don't mean slipping my resume in the envelope or hinting that I want a job or anything like that... just showing appreciation for their time, and making a decent impression to help start some kind of reputation in the local legal community.My gut feel is that a simple email would be the appropriate medium for this sort of thing, but most attorneys do not make email addresses publicly available. All I usually have to work with are postal addresses for their physical offices. Are "old-school" paper thank you notes a little too "weird" for situations where you've only met for a moment or two after a seminar?
You should stalk them. Follow them around town, show up at their house. They like that.
