Continuing Legal Education Seminars (CLEs) are a great opportunity to learn more about a legal practice area in which you are interested and they are often free for law students.  You can list them on your resume to show areas of interest and additional training.  They can also be a wonderful way to meet practicing lawyers in different areas.  Many different bar related organizations sponsor CLEs.
