Employers & Careers

The resources of the Law School's Career Development Office are available to all law students, both JD and LLM/SJD, as well as to all alumni of Tulane Law School.  The staff includes five professional career counselors, each of whom functions both as a generalist and as a specialist in a particular practice setting or practice area.  In addition to extensive individual career counseling, staff members develop and maintain relationships with employers throughout the United States and abroad and create programs to educate students about job search skills as well as practice-related topics.  The most important role of the Career Development Office is to work with students to reach their professional goals.

Career Development Office

Tulane's Career Development Office holds regular workshops on resumes and cover letters, interviewing skills, networking, and other topics related to job search strategies. Other programs focus on particular practice areas (e.g., international law, corporate law) or practice settings (e.g., government opportunities, private practice in particular geographic locations). Both JD and LLM/SJD students are invited to attend and participate in all of these programs.

The Career Development Office is open during the hours listed to the right for appointments with career counselors and use of the library and other resources. For appointments, telephone 504.865.5942, or e-mail the appropriate career counselor. Each day that school is in session, a Career Counselor is available from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm - without an appointment - to meet briefly with students and to respond to quick questions. Access to the office either before 8:30 am or after 5:00 pm is by appointment.
