Career Planning

From your first day on campus, through the ebbs and flows of your interests, to graduation day and beyond, our full-service Office of Career Planning supports your journey to a rewarding legal career.

Services and Programs

Office of Career Planning (OCP) counselors are experienced JDs with diverse industry experiences to draw from as they work with you to identify your career interests and showcase your professional skillsets. Services and programs include:

  • Individual career counseling
  • Online jobs database
  • Résumé and cover letter review
  • Job search skill workshops, including networking and interview skills
  • On-campus recruiting and mock interviews

Networking Opportunities

Throughout the year, OCP organizes a variety of opportunities for students to connect with law professionals who align with their career interests, including:

  • Panels, presentations, and career fairs
  • The LinkedIn Mentor program (connecting alumni with current students)
  • Minority and diversity recruitment opportunities
  • Public interest/public sector legal careers day
  • Tech Sector networking events

Whether it was preparing me for informational interviews, invitations to lunches, or my final interviews at Kilpatrick, my OCP counselor was always only a phone call away. She even helped me decide on a schedule so I could take full advantage of an amazing externship opportunity. When I came into her office to tell her about my Kilpatrick offer, she gave me a huge hug and then sat me down to answer all of my questions.
