The University of Georgia School of Law is redefining what it means to be a great national public institution – offering a world-class, hands-on, purpose-driven educational experience while never surrendering our commitment to accessibility. Through its Career Development Office, the law school provides comprehensive support services and resources to help current students and alums explore and discover their career options and goals, prepare for interviews, perfect resumes, locate professional opportunities, and obtain jobs. Students are encouraged to begin interacting with the Career Development Office from the start of their first year in law school, and continue to work closely with the office throughout law school. During mid-fall of the first year, the Career Development advisors begin individual job counseling to assist and encourage each student along their career paths. The career curriculum at our law school continues year round and addresses the full range of jobs available to lawyers.


Career Counseling
Career Development advisors provide students with the tools, resources, and guidance necessary to enable them to secure fulfilling employment in line with their career goals and individual qualifications. Each law student has access to a Career Development advisor to guide and encourage them throughout their job search. The Career Development staff also arrange interviews with employers for our law school students through a variety of on- and off-campus events, and coordinate ongoing job listings throughout the year.
