Students - Career Services

 

Students are the focus of our work. We present and sponsor a variety of programs each semester on topics ranging from the judicial clerkship interview to emotional intelligence for lawyers. Want to know which programs might help you along your career path?

Our office is devoted to supporting you in your search for meaningful employment. Making career decisions and conducting a job search while carrying a full academic load is tough work. But we’re here to help.

Career Counseling
When it comes to career counseling, we don’t believe that one size fits all. Rather, our services are tailor-made, just for you. That’s right, you can drop in or make an appointment and one of our advisors will help you figure out a path that fits your specific needs. We are available throughout your law school career and long after you graduate to help you navigate the world of work opportunities available to students and alumni of Iowa Law.

Professional Development
There is a lot to learn during law school besides the law. We encourage you to

  • Explore career options and figure out just who you want to be as a lawyer
  • Learn to carry out an efficient and successful job search
  • Assess your strengths and goals
  • Make the most of your study habits and strong work ethic
  • Improve your networking skills
  • Refine your emotional intelligence
  • Make time to take care of your whole self
