The office of Career Development and Professionalism (CDP) strives to provide every student with an individualized career that is reflective of their year in law school, their personal background, and their career goals. We have a wide range of resources, including counselors who can work with you one-on-one, to help you determine which legal area best matches your interests. We then plan a career track to explore those interests throughout law school, as well as get additional legal experience to prepare you for the job market.
After your first year, we encourage you to get practical experience every semester. That starts with finding your first summer job or internship. To prepare for that, we help you build your resume, conduct mock interviews, and explore networking opportunities for mentorship and job connections. We also offer you access to our extensive database of internship and job prospects. Additionally, we facilitate student participation in off-campus job fairs throughout the year. We send out a weekly newsletter alerting students to ongoing job and networking opportunities.
For international LL.M. students who intend to work in the United States, the office of Career Development and Professionalism is here to help you through the process of seeking employment in the U.S.
Our office also facilitates student access to the alumni adviser network, a database of alumni across the world who can answer questions about their specialized fields and career paths.
