Career Development Office

The Career Development Office (CDO) looks forward to working with you!  CDO staff meets with every first-year law student sometime during your first two semesters of law school to discuss your goals and to start planning your career path both before and after graduation. You will be taking classes your first summer, but let’s still get together to review your resume, draft cover letters, and strategize next steps based on your interests and goals. Be on the lookout for an email from the CDO to help get you started in your career development!
