Partner with Career and Professional Development

The Office of Career and Professional Development can always use your help to assist our current students in their career planning and job searches. 

  • Networking and Informational Interviews  - One of the most significant ways you can help our current students is being willing to meet with them for informational interviews or just networking with them in the Twin Cities legal community.  When students want to learn more about an area of law, a type of practice, or an employer, we would love to introduce them to alumni who can answer their questions. Whether you just graduated, have practiced for several years or have used your law degree in a non-traditional way, your perspective is valuable to a law student. 
  • Panel Presentations and Speaking Engagements - CPD hosts a large number of career-related events throughout the academic year.  For many of these events we rely on professionals with practical experience like you, who are able to give students current, first-hand information about their area of expertise and your own personal career formation.
  • Mock Interviews - To prepare students as they search for jobs, experienced attorneys conduct mock interviews with students and provide them with advice on their job search. If you have experience interviewing law students or law graduates, this is a perfect volunteer opportunity for you.
  • Job opportunities - To provide opportunities for students, if you know of a job opportunity, please send the information to
