Career Services

Recruiting and Networking Opportunities

Our goal is simple: career education that leads to employment and career satisfaction for our students and graduates. The calendar year is a whirlwind of job fairs, recruitment programs and special events to bring employers and our highly-motivated students together. Our Early Interview Week and Fall On-Campus Recruiting programs result in job offers for the majority of second and third year students interested in private sector employment.

Hundreds of full-time, summer and part-time job listings are publicized exclusively to our students and our alumni through the Career Services Manager (CSM) online career information system.

Additional opportunities to network with prospective employers abound, including numerous luncheons, receptions and dinners hosted by law firms just for first year NYU School of Law students. Twenty six law firm events took place last spring alone! We are always striving to develop creative strategies to make the circle of NYU School of Law employers wider and more diverse. We also hold an Alternative Careers Forum showcasing alumni who have transitioned to other industries.

We regularly conduct "Effective Recruiting at NYU School of Law" meetings with law firms to increase their success in adding NYU School of Law graduates to their professional staffs. We also travel with the Dean to conduct hiring partner meetings with employers nationwide to cities such as Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston.

All of these services and resources makes the Office of Career Services a busy and exciting place and our students receive advice and feedback on over 1200 resumes and letters and more.

The numbers are staggering, but what is special about the Office of Career Services is not the volume, but how we strive to meet your own individual career research and job search needs. We know that each of you is unique, inspired to pursue a legal education for very different reasons, with different dreams, goals, pressures and challenges. We invite you to take a career journey--to learn, to grow, and to fulfill your professional aspirations.
