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.

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.
