Career Development

Welcome to the Career Development Office at St. John's School of Law. The Career Development Office assists students and alumni with career planning and development.

St. John’s Law has the 4th highest employment rate in New York

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.
