It's not just about finding a job after graduation. Practicing your skills in a real-world setting is a crucial part of your legal education. To help students achieve their professional goals, the Office of Career Services provides many services, programs, and resources, including:
- Career Counseling
Choosing the law means choosing the profession, not a specific job. Whether you hope to practice law in a traditional or non-traditional legal setting, we are here to help guide you.
- Job Search Resources
Students can login using their UVID/Password to access these resources
- Report your legal experience
Help keep the law school's reputation strong by reporting your career plans
- Job Scams Alert
Online communication, inclduing email and online job systems has made it easier for job seekers to find positions posted by employers. Unfortunately, the same technology makes it easier for scammers to create fraudulent positions. Learn how to play it safe.
Career Services Statement of Support
The Office of Career Services team stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the SBA, BLSA, and other student organizations in supporting the protesting of racial injustice in our city, nation and world. We acknowledge and denounce the systemic forms of discrimination that continue to marginalize underrepresented and underserved students and alumni.
We are re-committing ourselves to the principles of anti-racism and anti-oppression in all facets of career development including career education, advising, programming and employer relations. Each of us is dedicated to supporting all students and affirm our commitment to educating employers about the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion.
We promise to work hard to make racial justice a reality for all Loyola law students and will engage in a dialogue with students about how to best support them in the work they are called to do. We are here for you.
We encourage you to also read the main law school's statement here.
All students are able to access the PEARSON job posting system via a personal username and password. If you do not have an account, please send an email to email@example.com with your name, email address, class year, and graduation date. Our office will send you a username and password to PEARSON as soon as possible.
