The Office of Career Services (OCS) is located in Suite 263 in the Law School's North Wing. We look forward to assisting with your career and professional development.
OCS uses Symplicity to host resources and to facilitate on-campus interviews, resume forwards, job postings, and off-campus interview programs. You use it to manage your application documents, to apply for on-campus employers, resume forwards, and some off-campus interview programs, to schedule on-campus interviews, to search job postings, and to schedule appointments with your advisor.
The law library reference staff prepares a series of guides to help you choose your legal career path. Find out more information about many areas of law and how to locate other career resources.
Some law schools provide reasonable access to their career resources for students and graduates of other law schools. Each law school has its own reciprocity policy. To learn about the reciprocity policies of law schools, see the National Association for Law Placement's web site. If, having reviewed a school's reciprocity policy, you want to request reciprocity, please complete a Request for Reciprocity form.
