NYU School of Law students are assisted in their job search by the most extensive placement program in the country. The Office of Career Services begins working closely with JD students in the fall of their First Year. Together with the Public Interest Law Center, the office organizes small group sessions, individual appointments, numerous panels and workshops on all aspects of job hunting, and provides mock interviews in the office as well as with alumni at law firms.
Students work as law firm associates, judicial law clerks, staff attorneys with public interest and government organizations, in-house attorneys and non-practicing lawyers in banking and consulting. Our employment statistics are available here.
