CAREER SERVICES AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT


Mandatory CSO Orientation: All students are required to attend mandatory Career Services orientation sessions, held in the first year of law school.

OCI Interview Requirements: If a student schedules an interview through the Career Services Office during OCI and fails to show up for the interview, that student will not be allowed to further participate in OCI until the student informs the Career Services Office of an acceptable reason for missing the interview and brings a letter of apology addressed to the employer to the Career Services Office.

Pre-Registration 3/4L Career Planning and Portfolio Requirement: Students will not be allowed to register for their final semester of law school until they engage in a Transition Interview with the Career Services Office, which will include producing an acceptable legal application document portfolio and discussing or sharing post-graduate job search or employment plans.

Required Pre-Graduation Employment Survey:  Each graduating student must complete an employment survey with the Career Services Office.  Completion of this survey is a graduation requirement because the law school must report its graduates’ employment status to various entities.

Employment Recommendations: Because of federal law records requirements, students who wish to have a faculty or staff member write a recommendation that discloses any information contained in their records, such as grades or class standing, must complete a Request for Letter of Recommendation form available in the OTR and present it to the faculty member before the letter can be issued.
