A degree from Texas Law kick-starts career opportunities in every legal sector throughout the country. Our Career Services Office can help you achieve your career goals by advising you of career options, providing job search strategies and resources, and connecting you with potential employers.
We have a dedicated team of career counselors—all of whom have J.D.s— who are experts in advising students. They can help you decide on your best career path, and how to pursue and land the job of your dreams.
Meet Your Career Counselor
Every Texas Law student has a career counselor assigned to them. Go see that person! Your counselor is an important ally as you navigate your career path. Note that 1Ls will be able to meet with their counselor starting in October of their first semester.
From panels exploring different career paths to professional development workshops, we provide opportunities for you to hone the skills and knowledge to be successful in your career pursuits.
Land a Job
With interview programs exclusive to Texas Law students as well as nationwide consortia programs,
you have the opportunity to apply to hundreds of legal employers for summer and postgraduate positions.
In addition, thousands of opportunities are posted on our Job Bank throughout the year.
Career Path Resources
Whether you pursuing a career at BigLaw or a small-to-midsize firm, as a government attorney or public defender, as a judicial intern, or in a business setting, we provide a wealth of career-development resources for you to conduct your self-directed job search.
Connect with Attorneys
Attorneys and recruiting coordinators are eager to meet you during our exclusive networking programs as well as meet-and-greets held at the law school. In addition, take a moment to connect with attorneys and your fellow students at our career panels and workshops.
