Building Careers and Inclusive Communities
We believe that legal education institutions and the larger legal community are not as diverse and inclusive as they should be. We strive to create a sense of belonging and combat all forms of discrimination, prejudice and racism to create a more just and inclusive office, school, and professional community.
We bring a commitment to help all students have a fair shot at any kind of employment they seek.
We provide a safe place for people to discuss issues related to discrimination, diversity, and inclusion at the law school, with employers, and in our communities.

Establishing Legal Careers
As I transitioned from a law student to post-graduate employment as a corporate law attorney at a law firm, the Career Development Office (CDO) continuously proved to be an incredible source of guidance and support. The CDO took the time to learn about me and my aspirations. At each stage of the application process, the CDO was highly engaged and provided specific feedback.
