Recruiting and Student Engagement

WashULaw students enter law school with strong academic credentials, varied backgrounds, and diverse interests. Our mission in the Career Center is to partner with students to understand their personal interests and career goals and to create an individualized plan to help them achieve those goals. The career paths of WashULaw graduates are as diverse as our students. While many graduates will head to major U.S. legal markets, including Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., Texas, and California, our talented graduates disperse to cities across the country and the world to pursue their legal careers. The Career Center offers many opportunities for employers to engage with and recruit WashULaw students and graduates, and we are committed to partnering with employers to offer an individualized approach to engagement and recruitment that meets each employer’s specific criteria and needs.


WashULaw Equal Opportunity Recruiting Policy

WashULaw acknowledges and respects NALP’s Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process. Each employer is free to develop specific recruiting policies and guidelines to fit their hiring objectives; however, WashULaw asks that employers recruit in an equitable manner, maintain a transparent hiring timeline, and give reasonable time periods for students to consider offers of employment.

WashULaw is committed to the principles and practices of equal employment opportunity and does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, national origin, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, or military or protected veteran status. The facilities and services of the WashULaw Career Center are available only to employers whose employment practices are consistent with this policy and are similarly non-discriminatory. By submitting a job posting, using the facilities or services of the WashULaw Career Center, or otherwise recruiting with WashULaw, your organization certifies that it complies with WashULaw’s non-discrimination policy.

    There are endless opportunities to engage with students throughout the year. Below are just a few options:

    Career Conversations | Career Conversations are 15-30 minute, small group conversations that provide a way for students to learn about new areas of the law and explore different practice settings while making meaningful connections with practicing attorneys. A student host will lead the conversation by asking the participating attorney(s) five prepared questions, followed by an open ended Q&A with students in attendance.

    Quick Counsel | Quick Counsel is an opportunity for students to connect one-on-one with a practicing attorney for an informational meeting. Students register for 10-minute time slots and come prepared with questions or topics for discussion.

    Career Center Blog | Whether short or long, highlight your firm or organization with a post in our weekly blog.

    To take advantage of any of the opportunities listed or if you would like for us to publicize your event, please email so that we can connect.
