For Students

The Career Services Office (CSO) offers a variety of services and educational opportunities to current students. With our favorable ratio of professional staff to students, we are able to meet individually with students frequently throughout the year.

The CSO offers programs on resume and cover letter drafting, networking and interviewing skills, clerkships, fellowships, researching employers, and a variety of informational sessions on different practice areas.

The CSO office also organizes the on-campus and off-campus interviewing programs, participation in numerous job fairs, networking receptions, job postings for summer and part-time employment, and other programs.
