Careers

Denver Law provides students with the skills and legal training to make an immediate, valuable impact upon graduating, but we know your degree is just the foundation toward building a successful legal career. In addition to the exceptional education you'll receive, we help you define and pursue your career goals from the first day of classes to graduation and beyond. Our Office of Career Development (CDO) is dedicated to planning and launching your career, as well as providing resources for alumni as they move forward in the legal space. The CDO team has an unmatched breadth and scope of connections, experience, resources, and enthusiasm to support your success.  

Simply put, the CDO will be with you every step of the way to ensure your degree opens the doors to your future. 

    Services:

    • Assists JD, master's, LLM and graduate tax students and alumni with their career planning.
    • Helps students and alumni to develop the skills necessary to obtain satisfying and meaningful employment.
    • Connects students, alumni and employers in Denver, throughout Colorado and beyond.
    • Provides access to resources for students and alumni to search for jobs and employers to post jobs. 

    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.
