How Do I Get a Job?

Going to law school is a huge commitment . . . but let’s be real.

You’re making this sacrifice of time, talent and finances to become a lawyer – not to remain a student.

From your first semester at Texas A&M School of Law, the Office of Career Services begins actively working with you to help you secure a job where you are passionate and purposeful about launching your legal career.

Our resources, expertise and practical tools are readily available to you.

From active internship and engaging mentorship programs to personal and comprehensive career counseling, we are wholeheartedly committed to helping every single one of our students develop a career path to find their perfect job.

Our Professional Staff

  • Will provide individualized career guidance using the knowledge and experience of our five licensed attorney counselors.
  • Cultivates a personal relationship with each student that will last throughout your internship, externship, interviewing for a full-time job, and receiving and accepting a job offer.
  • Is personally involved in the legal profession, with first-hand access to bar associations, boards, committees and community activities, including:
    • The State Bar of Texas, the Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA), the Tarrant County Bar Association (TCBA), the Tarrant County Young Lawyers Association (TCYLA), the Dallas Bar Association (DBA), and the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers Association (D​AYL), among others.
