Career Series

The Department of Career Services sponsors the Career Series to help students learn more about different areas of the law and get practical advice from leading attorneys in these areas. The Career Series is ongoing and offered in the fall and spring semesters.

During the Fall 2017 Career Series, students will learn about postgraduate and internship opportunities with the U.S. Dept. of Justice.  They also will get practical advice from attorneys practicing immigration and medical malpractice law and hear from alumni working as judicial law clerks and court staff attorneys.
