Students in the evening program make the decision to attend law school for a wide variety of reasons. Some are fully intent on practicing law in the traditional sense of representing clients by going to court, drafting legal documents and assisting them with business transactions and other legal issues. Others, however, have no intention of practicing law in this traditional sense. Instead, their goal is to earn an additional degree which will allow them to work outside of their present career or simply to make themselves more marketable in their current professions.
Regardless of your career goals, you will need to acquire career building skills and utilize these skills throughout your lifetime. In addition, it is important that you take action that will lead you in the direction you choose, including the choice of courses you take, the kind of work experience you obtain, joining a journal and taking part in extra-curricular activities.
The Career Services Office is open until 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday for evening students. In addition, later hours are available by appointment. If you would like to speak to a counselor about your career goals, please contact: Arturo Errisuriz or Courtney Key.
