School of Law: Career Development

Law Career Development (LCD) provides comprehensive services to support students and graduates in their transitions from law school to professional life.

PROGRAMS & RESOURCES FOR GGU LAW STUDENTS & GRADUATES

One-on-One Counseling

Beginning in their first year, students receive individualized guidance and coaching from one of our four attorney-career counselors.

Lawcountability, J.D.

GGU Law is one of only 22 schools across the country that provide access to Lawcountablity, J.D., an innovative, online platform designed to help law students achieve their networking and professional development goals.

Access to Industry Experts

LCD continually brings attorneys to campus to speak about practice areas and job types. During the 2014-15 academic year, GGU Law hosted more than 30 such events.

Resources for Graduating Students

LCD 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

LCD 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 Law hosts semi-annual recruitment programs and promotes job fairs to link students with formal internship and job opportunities. LCD 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 Law 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 Santa Clara and Alameda County District Attorney Offices, the San Francisco and Marin County Public Defender Offices, the ACLU, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, the Federal Civil Rights Division for the City of Chicago, and the San Francisco Superior Court were just some of the agencies that selected GGU graduates as Bridge Fellows.
