Individual Counseling

ADP staffs two attorney-counselors dedicated to the professional development needs of LL.M. students. Each counselor has practiced law and can offer real-world insights into various career paths. You may sign up for individual appointments via bCourses.

Targeted Career Planning

We can help you explore a variety of legal career options—both traditional and nontraditional—and determine how to pursue them.

Your career planning will have two elements:

  • Exploration — learning about the types of opportunities compatible with your talents, work style, and lifestyle
  • Job Searching — finding and landing specific opportunities

Professional LL.M. Group

ADP’s counselors are here to work individually with you on both.

Professional Development Programming

ADP sponsors programs for LL.M. students throughout the year on topics including:

  • Resume writing
  • Interviewing skills
  • U.S. business etiquette and networking
  • Various legal practice areas

LL.M. Job Fairs

Most LL.M. students are eligible to attend two job fairs specifically designed for LL.M. students:  the International Student Interview Program and the UCLA LL.M. Interview Program. ADP support for students attending these job fairs includes:

  • Resume review, to conform your C.V. into a U.S.-style resume.
  • Mock interviews, to help you develop interviewing skills through simulated job interviews conducted and evaluated by practicing attorneys.
  • Individual appointments, to discuss bidding strategy and your overall plan for attending ISIP.
  • Other job opportunities. Many international employers regularly solicit resumes from students to fill their hiring needs each year.
