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., 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 Recruiting Policy

The NALP Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process provide an excellent framework. WashULaw also recognizes that each employer is unique and specific policies and guidelines may vary, while still promoting a fair and transparent recruiting process. Employers must not discriminate on the bases of race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, gender identity or expression, veteran status or disability. We expect our employers to recruit in a manner that is equitable and transparent with their hiring timeline, giving reasonable response deadlines and a reasonable period of time to consider offers of employment when each offer is made.

  • Build Your Campus Presence

    The Career Center hosts two large employer events annually: the Diversity Expo held in the fall and the Employer Showcase held in the winter. Join our mailing list to be the first to know when registration opens for these highly anticipated events.

    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 bi-weekly blog.

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