KU Law students at Legal Career Options Day

Welcome to the KU Law Career Services Office!

Planning for your career begins before you arrive on campus for the first day of classes. The Career Services Office’s commitment to you is lifelong.

We work with prospective students to understand the options they may have in school and after graduation, current students to secure opportunities during their time at KU Law, and graduates as they look to launch their careers in industries ranging from law to business to not-for-profits across the region, country and abroad. We also work with alumni wishing to move or change careers.
