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 2018 Career Series, students will learn about postgraduate and internship opportunities with the U.S. Department of Justice. They also will get practical advice from alumni panels on postgraduate judicial clerkships and the differences in practicing at small, medium and large law firms. The series also will include a program for law students who do not want to practice traditionally and envision themselves as entrepreneurs.
For questions about the Career Series or to suggest a Career Series program, please contact:
