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 S.C. Attorney General’s Office. They also will get practical advice from an alumni panel on how to succeed as a summer associate and learn from a representative from Equal Justice Works about resources and opportunities available to them through the School of Law’s membership. The series also will include a program for law students who do not want to practice traditionally and envision themselves as entrepreneurs.
