KU Law students at Legal Career Options Day

Welcome to the KU Law Career Services Office!

Developing and executing your career strategy begins before you arrive on campus and continues throughout your life. The Career Services Office works 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 as they move or change careers.

If you’re an employer seeking to post a job or a student or alumnus searching for an opportunity, please click on the appropriate button at right to be taken directly to Symplicity, our online job posting and search system.
