I need to frame my work experience in a way that looks better than it actually is, and the networking events have been extremely beneficial to try out different angles to see how they work in a mostly safe environment. Oh and free food/booze is pretty sweet.

As far as actually getting a job through them, they seem pretty useless.

I think that's a good point, talking to attorneys and hearing what they like (or don't like) about their jobs/practice areas is pretty much always helpful, especially as a 1L.

I think sometimes it *might* also give you a sense of what people are like at that firm but of course that can easily be skewed by who you end up talking to from that firm, etc.
