Career Services for Students

Career Panels and Programs

Mark K. Suzumoto '82 participating in the program "How to build a practice"

Do you know what lawyers do all day? Have you ever talked to a tax attorney or a District Attorney? CSO programs give students an opportunity to get the inside story on a particular type of career that might be of interest to you.

Each year the CSO invites law firm, corporate, government and public interest attorneys, and J.D.'s who are using their degrees in interesting ways, as well as other representatives of prospective employers, to speak on various careers for law graduates.

CSO programs includes a formal presentation followed by an informal, question-and-answer period. Panel members welcome this opportunity to interact with students, answer questions and share advice. Audio recordings of programs from previous years are available in the Law Library’s Koren Center.
