Professional Development

Your professional development is our primary concern. Our goal is to equip students with the necessary tools and skills that will serve them as they continue to seek employment opportunities beyond their first legal job. You will receive an updated Career Development Handbook at the beginning of your third year to serve as a reference guide for your professional development and permanent job search.

Your Career Development Handbook includes information on legal resumes, cover letters, networking, interviewing, and accepting offers.  You can find an electronic copy of your handbook here. After accessing the portal, under Departments select Career Services and see the section "Getting Started."
