Career Services

Services for Prospective Students

Our office provides various services that includes resume and interview workshops, practice interviews, teleconferencing and career panels.

Mentoring programs

The School of Law’s wide-ranging mentoring program has drawn national attention in National Jurist magazine. Each member of the J.D. first-year class is matched with one of more than 200 mentors who are practicing lawyers or judges, and the relationship is expected to continue throughout their law school years.

In addition, the CSO works with the National Career Network Program who gives second- and third-year students access to an extensive national and international network of alumni geared toward career development.

A focus on public interest

As part of a public law school, our faculty and students value government and public interest work. Each year, UB School of Law graduates are employed in public interest and government organizations at a rate that is two to three times the national average. Each summer the law school’s Buffalo Public Interest Law Program, along with other organizations and sponsors, provides substantial stipends to exceptionally qualified and committed students who will intern at highly regarded organizations in the public sector.

An outstanding hiring record

Our graduates are practicing in the most prominent law firms and public interest settings across the nation and around the world, as well as holding leadership positions in all levels of government. Taking into consideration the practice area, employment location and cost of attending the School of Law, the return on investment is the best in New York.

Our staff

You will find the School of Law to be a welcoming place filled with great people and fantastic opportunities. The CSO staff is motivated, knowledgeable, and available to provide a wide variety of resources designed to assist you.
