Career Services lists job opportunities received from law firms, government agencies or public interest organization. Our students and graduates can access them online through the QULaw Career Connections site [login required].

Off-Campus Career Fairs
Employers often participate in Career Fairs to maximize their recruitment efforts. It is to their advantage to send an attorney to one location to interview many students.

On-Campus Interviews (OCI) Program
During the months of August through November, some legal employers come on campus to interview second- and third-year (evening) students for summer positions next summer, and third- and fourth-year (evening) students for permanent positions beginning in the fall after they graduate.

Resume-Collect Program - QULaw Career Connections
The Resume Collect Program consists of employers who do not interview on campus, but request that Career Services aggregate resumes from interested students and forward them to the employer electronically.

We have an extensive collection of career-related texts available to students in our office at the School of Law Center. View the list of titles
