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 2020 Career Series, students will learn about opportunities with the Department of Justice and explore how funding from Equal Justice Works can support their public interest work during and after law school. They also will get practical advice about working in class action litigation. Additionally, a panel of alumni will discuss state and federal judicial clerkships.
