The following is an excerpt from the Career Development Handbook.

The CDO is pleased to offer LawFit, an online career assessment tool designed just for those interested in the law (law students, pre-law students, and lawyers) to all 1L students for free.

This resource was created through a professional partnership between an attorney and an industrial psychologist and was tested and validated over a five-year period. LawFit aims to help clarify an individual’s professional interests, values, and potential direction, providing a personalized report linking your stated preferences to specific legal practice areas/settings and relevant non-legal careers that could be a good fit for you.

Each of the CDO counselors has taken the assessment and is prepared to discuss results with interested students. We encourage 1Ls to take LawFit prior to Career Night in September to facilitate networking discussions with visiting attorneys and professionals at that event. However, LawFit results are meant to be reflected upon and utilized throughout one’s law school career and beyond. Your results will provide you with useful insights and language to use in further career exploration and counseling conversations with our staff.

Although the LawFit Career Assessment is robust and focused on law-related careers, it is not exhaustive. Additional personality and skill-assessment modules are available online, including the Attorney Assessment, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Clifton Strengths, and DiSC Profile.
