The Office of Career Services (OCS) 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.

 

Access to Industry Experts

OCS continually brings attorneys to campus to speak about practice areas and job types. During the 2017-18 academic year, GGU Law hosted more than 30 such events.

 

Resources for Graduating Students

OCS 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

OCS utilizes a e-news, 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.

 

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.

 

Recruitment Programs

GGU Law hosts semi-annual recruitment programs and promotes job fairs to link students with formal internship and job opportunities. OCS also maintains a password-protected website featuring job listings and a database of 7,000 employers.
