Student Resources

The Office of Career and Professional Development (CPD) provides students exceptional and exclusive opportunities for internships, fellowships and post-graduate careers. Working closely with alumni, faculty and student organizations, the CPD designs seminars, workshops and panel discussions to give students exposure to job opportunities, professionalism and the practice of law.

Among the CPD's resources are its career advisors, all of whom have law degrees and are available to meet with students and graduates in individualized counseling sessions to discuss job search strategies and answer questions during the job search process. Each CPD staff member has a unique and valuable background, including experience in the career planning field, public interest work and large law firm practice. The staff is available to meet on an individual basis to discuss personal goals and career development strategy.
