Career Night 2013

At Career Night, students have the opportunity to speak with attorneys in a variety of practice areas and learn about the diverse career paths of law school graduates. 

The Career Development Office prepares students for a successful job search. From help with interviewing and resume preparation, to developing a job search strategy, our staff members are a valuable resource for students and alumni. The office also plans a series of networking events to connect employers with potential applicants.

We encourage students to prioritize their use of our office from the very beginning of their legal education. Our staff members have diverse professional and educational backgrounds and bring with them more than 80 combined years of experience helping law students explore the legal profession and successfully launch their careers.
