Career Development Office

The Career Development Office (CDO) works with students and alumni of the William S. Boyd School of Law to provide the tools and resources for building a rewarding legal career. The CDO offers a variety of services: one-on-one counseling, resume and cover letter review, mock interviews, networking opportunities, and workshops.

Career development begins early in law school. An orientation to the Career Development Office is held in early November for all first-year students. The orientation program introduces students to the CDO staff and career planning resources. Each first-year student is required to meet with a CDO advisor to develop individualized short-term and long-term job search strategies. As students proceed through law school, CDO advisors help them implement these plans, adapting strategies to evolving or changing career goals.

The CDO's frequent outreach to prospective employers locally, statewide, and nationally results in a wealth of opportunities for school-year, summer, and post-graduate employment.
