Career Exploration

Law school, just like any other educational experience, ought to be about expanding your horizons. When it comes to thinking about your career options, we encourage you to think broadly and explore all of the practice settings, legal specialties, and nontraditional law-related opportunities out there. A good place to begin is to conduct an inventory of your values, interests, goals, and existing skills.  Some of the self-assessment resources we've identified on the Self-Assessment Web page can help you do this. The next step is to explore potential career matches.  Our Practice Areas resource Web page is designed to assist you in identifying the range of practice settings and legal specialties.
We have also developed resources to help you think outside the traditional legal careers box. You can find our Alternative Careers page here.
