To help you make informed decisions about your career choices our OCPD draws on the School’s extraordinary alumni community, its experiential clinics, and a supportive faculty through a full calendar of large and intimate networking events, programs, and workshops on established and developing practice areas, as well as job search skills. We also partner with student organizations to develop programming tailored to the specific interests of our student body.
Year Round Programs
Career Conversations Fair
In the fall, our annual Career Conversations Fair, now in its second decade, is an invaluable opportunity to network and learn firsthand about the job market from law practitioners. More than 50 alumni, spanning more than 25 practice areas, gather for several hours of informal conversations about careers in the Law.
Lunch with a Practitioner
Throughout the academic year, our 'Lunch with a Practitioner' series gives you an opportunity to meet attorneys in a more intimate setting, providing for greater insight into different practice areas and career paths.
In addition to our practice area programs, we hold a number of specialized skills workshops, presented by members of the professional staff, that focus primarily on the vital and sophisticated networking and interviewing skills you will need in order to land a job..
Law Firm Receptions
The OCPD hosts receptions for major law firms that wish to establish closer ties with our students. These receptions are highly popular events that provide you with a unique opportunity to meet with the partners and associates of the firms that attend.
