Law Career Services Office Funding Policy

Job Fairs (which may include associated conferences)

CSO will fund registration with the following stipulations:

  • Must meet early registration deadlines
  • Must apply to CSO at least 30 days in advance (application includes Job Fair documentation, interviews, etc.)
  • Must provide feedback to CSO on the Job Fair and insight for future students (5 minute podcast or short email) within 30 days of your return.
  • Provide proof of attendance. If you do not attend you must reimburse the CSO.

Note: The cost of sending a student to a job fair versus creating those opportunities one-by-one makes the job fair expense worthwhile.

Conferences (No Job Fair Associated)

CSO will fund up to $500 total for all students attending any particular conference. The total sum will be divided between students who want to attend. Stipulations:

  • Must apply with at least 30 days in advance (application includes conference schedule, etc.)
  • CSO will never pay more than the “early registration” fee.
  • Must populate the WU Law Footprint with at least 5 contacts from the conference.
  • Must do a 5 minute podcast about the conference for student viewing.
  • Provide proof of attendance. If you do not attend you must reimburse the CSO.
