The Office of Professional Development assists UofL Law students and alumni in their employment efforts through general information sessions and individual counseling. Students are equipped for the job search process through education, information and access to experienced staff.
UofL Law graduates have achieved an employment rate above the national average. The Office of Professional Development offers On-Campus Interviews each semester for law clerk positions during the academic year, summer law clerk positions and full-time employment upon graduation. In addition, individual job search assistance is available.
Our Web site provides information and links to Federal and State/Local Government, Fellowships and the Government Honors and Internship Handbook, just to name a few. Information about the American Bar Association's Graduate Law Programs and Study Abroad Program are also available.
The Office of Professional Development sponsors Information Sessions during the semester and provides opportunities for students to meet and talk with practitioners in a wide variety of legal areas. Students are encouraged to begin gaining practical legal experience by performing their Public Service requirement. Brandeis School of Law students may also participate in a number of Career Fairs.
Each fall, a number of lawyers who do not practice law are invited to meet with students who are interested in researching alternative uses for their JD. These programs enable students to consider the vast array of career applications for a legal education.
The Office of Professional Development's library resources include legal directories and numerous career planning publications.
