Framework for Success

The Career Development Office (CDO) at UCI Law supports our students in three critical areas:

  • Job Search: The legal profession comprises many areas of practice, each requiring distinct knowledge, skills and abilities. Throughout the academic year, we conduct panel discussions, brown bag lunches and workshops covering a broad range of topics, including job search basics, self-assessment, and information on accessing opportunities. Each student works individually with an attorney advisor to craft their strategic career path.
  • Career Education and Professional Development: The CDO educates students regarding legal employment opportunities with public interest organizations, government entities, law firms, corporate legal departments and other practice settings. The CDO also works closely with students to develop the professional skills necessary to enter the job market as competitive, practice-ready applicants.
  • Recruiting and Networking Opportunities: The CDO organizes on- and off-campus interview
    opportunities, panels and receptions with legal employers.
