As a graduate, you now have access to alumni-specific job postings in the Symplicity Job Bank. If you had an account as a law student, contact Jennifer Dela Rosa in the CDO to reactivate it as an alumnus. If you did not use the system as a student, you will need to register.

Making Connections

Whether a new graduate or a decade out of law school, one of the best strategies for finding and securing job opportunities is connecting with fellow UNC Law alumni. The CDO maintains small firm databases for specific cities of interest, and can connect you to the UNC General Alumni Association database.

Many law schools grant reciprocity to help students and graduates of other schools search for positions in different job markets. UNC Law alumni may request reciprocity to any accredited law school on a one-at-a-time basis. Please contact the CDO at for additional information.
