The CDO provides multiple opportunities for students and alumni to interact with public and private-sector employers, including on and off-campus interviews, online job postings, and networking events. Additionally, counselors provide one-on-one career advising, document review, and interview preparation.
The CDO organizes multiple interview programs in New Orleans and throughout the U.S., providing Tulane Law students with opportunities to interview with leading private and public employers, including global law firms, governmental agencies, and public interest organizations.
