Attending law school while working full-time and enjoying a personal life leaves little time for career development activities. Yet it is important to begin clarifying your goals and making connections in the legal community before you graduate.
At this workshop you will learn how to:
- Explore different areas of the law and figure out what is right for you – even if you have no time to intern.
- Create a professional network in the legal community.
- Gain legal experience and build your resume.
- Plan for life after graduation so that you find a rewarding job.

Last year, over 50 Maryland circuit, appellate, and federal district court judges attended the LCDO’s Judicial Appreciation Reception. Students interested in judicial internships and clerkships met and mingled with judges, and many of them made connections that led to jobs. You can do the same! Please join the LCDO as we honor and give thanks to the Maryland Judiciary for their support of UB Law students and alumni. Beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Many law students are confused by the federal hiring process, and for a good reason, it is confusing. This presentation is intended to provide a comprehensive overview on how federal agencies hire law students for both internships and entry-level attorney positions, as well as provide strategic advice that results in clear and actionable answers to students’ most common questions. The federal competitive service will also be discussed as it offers a wide range of interesting and rewarding JD alternative careers.
Bring your own lunch, as well as all of your questions!
