Business

Most large corporations and many other business entities of all types and sizes hire lawyers as direct employees in permanent positions. Some of these positions involve the traditional practice of law, while others do not. Lawyers involved in legal practice areas are often referred to as "in-house counsel" or "inside counsel." Just like private law firms, corporate legal departments vary in size and in practice areas. Lawyers working for smaller businesses may find themselves handling a variety of legal matters from litigation to transactions. Lawyers in larger corporations may specialize in particular areas of practice.

Some businesses hire newly-graduated lawyers for their legal staffs, but many require at least some level of experience. A few businesses interview on-campus, but most of these positions are acquired through direct contact or through referrals. The CDO can help you develop a plan if you are interested in pursuing a career as inside counsel.
