About the Career Development and Law Practice Center

What we do

As career development evolves throughout your adult life, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the options available as well as the qualifications necessary for various positions. The need to plan carefully and conduct a well-structured employment campaign is critical in view of such a competitive market. It is imperative that you begin to create a strategy in your freshman year (1L) and constantly assess and re-work the plan as you progress throughout your law school career. Your employment success will depend in large measure upon your preparedness to conduct a job search campaign. Only by undertaking your job search in a responsible and business-like manner can you be assured that you will find a position best suited to your talents and interests.

The College of Law’s Career Development and Law Practice Center offers a variety of services, starting in the freshman year, designed to improve the student’s employment opportunities. Our primary goal is to match the educational and experiential skills of the student with the needs of a particular employer. We are dedicated to increasing employment opportunities for students and alumni through direct contact with employers.

The Career Development and Law Practice Center functions as a resource center. Our experienced, professional staff is here to assist students and alumni who are seeking career planning and employment information. The office does not, nor can it, function in such a way as to guarantee jobs. You'll find many of our resources right here on these pages. If you need further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us!
