Career Development

Georgia Law provides vigorous support services and resources to help current students and alumni explore and discover their career options and goals, prepare for interviews and perfect resumes, and locate jobs openings and other opportunities. Students are encouraged to begin interacting with the Office of Career Development from the start of their first year in law school, through Student Professional Development opportunities to explore and prepare for career options.  During mid-fall of the first year, the Career Services advisors begin individual job counseling to assist and encourage each student along their career paths.  The career curriculum at Georgia Law continues year round and addresses the array of jobs available to lawyers.
