Career Counseling

Our career counselors can help you navigate your job search and offer guidance in balancing the demands of finding a job while in law school. Each one of our nine career counselors has a J.D. or LL.M., has practiced law, and specializes in counseling students interested in working in the corporate, government, judicial, law firm or public interest sector, as well as those interested in pursuing alternative careers.
