CAREER SERVICES FOR LAW STUDENTS
Welcome to the Office of Career Services. We are dedicated to meeting your needs by providing personalized career advising and the resources you need to plan and pursue the career you want. We can help you market yourself confidently and professionally and assist you in developing life-long job search techniques.
Our team is available to help you formulate your career plans, devise an effective job search strategy, build experience, and refine your application materials. Call 413-782-1416 or contact Dee Westcott at Dee.Westcott@law.wne.edu to schedule an appointment.
Mock interviews with our team are helpful in formulating responses, practicing professionalism, and receiving feedback that can assist you. Different types of legal employers utilize different interview strategies, so please set up an appointment prior to your interview to maximize your effectiveness.
There are many opportunities to network with alumni, both locally and across the nation. Many local alumni attorneys participate in the annual Networking Reception for 1Ls held each spring. Alumni often attend and present at law school events, and also support classroom learning by volunteering as moot court judges for mock trials.
We recommend that the first few months of a full-time law student’s first academic year be reserved largely for academic activities. We will be available to assist full-time first year students after October 1st each fall.
We provide students with student business cards for a small fee. Students can place new orders or reorders anytime throughout the calendar year. Visit our office or submit the request online.
Western New England University School of Law students and alumni may use Career Services resources at some other law schools. Requests for reciprocity can be made through Career Services here at the law school. Reciprocity is not usually extended from August 15 through November 15.
