Our dedicated Law Career Services professional staff provides comprehensive services to support students and graduates in their transitions from law school to professional life. Law Career Services (LCS) professional staff offerings include:
- One-on-One Counseling: Beginning in their first year, students receive individualized guidance and coaching from one of our four attorney-career counselors.
- Access to Industry Experts: LCS continually brings attorneys to campus to speak about practice areas and job types. During the 2011-12 academic year, GGU Law hosted more than 30 such events.
- Resources for Graduating Students: LCS offers a series of workshops specifically targeted to the needs of graduating students. Recent graduates receive weekly e-newsletter with job search advice, job leads, and networking opportunities.
- Real-Time Information on Jobs, Networking: LCS utilizes a blog, e-news, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube channel to inform students about trends in the market, job search advice, job and grant opportunities and networking events, with a specially structured program for public interest opportunities.
- Recruitment Programs: GGU hosts semi-annual recruitment programs and promotes job fairs to link students with formal internship and job opportunities. LCS also maintains a password-protected website featuring job listings and a database of 7,000 employers.
- Bridge Fellowship Program: To assist in a smooth transition to law practice, GGU provides modest stipends to recent graduates who are volunteering in a legal capacity for courts, government agencies and public interest organizations. Several of these Fellows were subsequently hired by their host organizations, or by other organizations as a direct result of the experience and professional contacts they gained in these positions. The San Francisco and Alameda County District Attorney Offices, the San Francisco and Monterey County Public Defender Offices, the EEOC, the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, and San Francisco Superior Court were just some of the agencies that selected GGU graduates as Bridge Fellows.
