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.

The Career Development Office played a significant role in my post-graduate experience. As a law student, I was very nervous about finding a job that would be rewarding both vocationally and financially. The CDO team worked zealously alongside me to help me find the best possible situation. In short, the CDO is well-connected, enthusiastic, and eager to find lasting careers for its students.
