Given the diversity of the student body, OCS offers a number of programs and opportunities for all students. As part of this effort, OCS has tailored a number of career programs. We also work closely with all student organizations including the diverse student organizations and OUTLaw (LGBT student group).
- The Office of Career Services stays abreast of surveys that highlight number/percent of diverse attorneys, as well as showcases the availability of diversity training, mentoring programs, and diversity initiatives at various organizations.
- There are various on-campus presentations and receptions related to diversity initiatives.
- Many law firms host diversity events at their firm for our students to enable them to learn about the firm's practice and meet/network with attorneys interested in diversity initiatives.
- Many firms offer scholarship or fellowship opportunities for 1L students as part of the firms' diversity initiatives.
- Students actively participate in the City Bar Diversity Fellowship Program.
- Students take part in mentoring programs offered through the Black, Latino, Asian Pacific American Law Alumni Association (BLAPA).
- OCS organizes the 1L Diversity Résumé directories twice a year—once in February and once in July, to enable students to gain access to additional employment opportunities.
