Career Development Office

It’s not only what you know. It’s who knows you.

Having a strong legal education and skills is the price of entry, but it doesn’t guarantee access. To get the right job, you’ll need to put yourself in front of the right people. That's where the Career Development Office comes in.

Specializing in legal careers, our career development counselors will help you connect with our strong network of professionals and alumni. At Quinnipiac, we continually work hard to build relationships with the best law firms, corporate legal departments, government agencies and nonprofits to create opportunities to get you introduced.
