Mission Statement

Customized Job Search Strategies

The Career Services team offers law students and graduates a collaborative approach to professional development and employment search strategies. To create individualized job search strategies, our experienced staff coordinates with a wide range of resources throughout the law school, including the Externship Office, the Offices of Academic Programs and Student Affairs, our faculty and administrators, as well as FSU Law’s extensive and supportive alumni network and career mentors.

Advising and Professional Development

Through advising and professional development, we prepare our students to be knowledgeable, confident and competitive in the legal services market. We strive to provide the necessary assessments to identify job opportunities that align with a student’s interests and values.

 Legal Market Research and Outreach

Our team reaches out within Florida and nationally to increase the profile of FSU Law and our students with potential employers, and to seek out an extensive range of job opportunities.  We stay on top of employment trends and emerging careers, including nontraditional legal opportunities where a J.D. degree is an advantage, to provide the most up-to-date information and guidance to our students and graduates.  As a part of our competitive outreach strategy, we explore aspects of the unique cultures of employers to aid students and alumni with their career choices.
