Career Services


From Washington, Iowa to Washington, DC; from Orange City, Iowa to Orange County, California, a JD from the University of Iowa College of Law will take you near or far, and the assistance you get from the Career Services Office will help you forge the path that is right for you.

Whether you are a law student or an alumnus, our office provides customized assistance to you as you navigate your career path. Iowa law graduates are consistently employed in AmLaw 100 firms, small law firms, federal agencies, prestigious judicial clerkships, and prominent non-profit organizations.

You work hard, and employers recognize that. In fact, employers consistently report that Iowa students demonstrate a keen work ethic that supports the College’s rigorous education. During a typical year, approximately 100-150 firms, corporations, government agencies, and courts visit the College of Law to hire our students. Even more consider Iowa students through résumé collections and off-campus recruiting programs in major metropolitan cities such as Chicago, New York City, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles. Students and alumni alike are recruited through hundreds of job postings and other employment opportunities each year. Curious about who recruits here? Check out this list
