How do we do it?
Every student is supported by a dedicated counselor from the Law School’s Career Development Office. Students get individualized attention from their first semester on, so they can identify a career pathway that interests them and pursue related coursework and activities. To complement this unique approach to career development, the upper-level curriculum has been designed around different career paths. Students build on their required foundation courses with advanced classes, drafting courses, clinic work, internships, externships, and co-curricular activities like trial and appellate advocacy—all focused on developing practical skills and targeted expertise so St. John’s Law students graduate profession-ready. The Career Development Office offers abundant opportunities to learn about career options and effective job-searching techniques, to meet attorneys in many areas of practice, and to receive advice and support from a team of caring, energetic, knowledgeable, and resourceful professionals.
