Career Paths

There are many career paths available to students pursuing a law degree. The one you choose depends on a number of factors, including your own interests, personality, prior experience, and your academic and practice strengths. Changing national and international economic factors also affect demand for lawyers in specific practice areas at different times. You should begin to think about your own career path early in law school, and you should take proactive steps to accomplish your goals. The CDO has resources and programs to help.

Check the links to the right of this text for basic information about some of the most common career paths for lawyers. For a more detailed discussion about timing and strategy considerations, see Strategies and Timelines.
