Recruitment Programs

Career Services helps students and graduates determine and fulfill their career goals, whether their aspirations lead them to private practice, public interest, military, government service, corporate, academia, judicial clerkships or alternative legal careers.

  • Medium firms (26-50 attorneys)
  • Small firms (on a limited basis)
  • Large government agencies
  • Fellowships and honors programs
