The Career Development Office uses Symplicity, a password-protected job database, for job postings.

Additional Information

When the CDO posts a job on Symplicity, prospective applicants are encouraged and expected to independently research the employers and opportunities listed as the CDO does not guarantee the accuracy or integrity of job postings. The system requires a deadline be included in any posting. Note: The position may be filled before that deadline, so apply early to any job listing that interests you.

Use of the CDO services or a job posting does not represent an endorsement of the employer, the position, or the views or values held by that employer.

Current students note:

  • First-year students attending law school full-time are encouraged not to seek employment during the first year of law school. This allows students to become academically established and adjust to the rigors of law school prior to adding additional commitments. In addition, the first year schedule is generally such that it is difficult to find blocks of time to work during the typical work day.
  • For any full-time student who opts to work during the academic year, it is recommended that the hours worked not exceed 20 hours per week.
