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 2021 Career Series, students will learn about opportunities with the Department of Justice and how the law school’s membership in Equal Justice Works can help them embark on a career in public service. They also will learn about the application process for state and federal judicial clerkships. The Career Series also will include a program to help students consider if they should get an LLM. For questions about the Career Series or to suggest a Career Series program, please contact:
