A Message from Center for Career Development

UF Law has a rich tradition of preparing our graduates for a broad spectrum of professional careers. In every state and in more than 30 countries, you will find UF Law alumni leading in the judiciary, practicing in firms of all sizes, influencing public policy, teaching in law schools or running businesses and public interest organizations.

At the Center for Career Development, we provide individualized career planning, offer more than 60 educational programs each year, administer an alumni mentoring program, and host on-campus interviewing programs, which bring employers from all over the state and nation to campus to interview our students.

In addition to bringing employers to students, we also bring students to employers. For example, our students participate in job fairs across the U.S. in major metropolitan areas such as Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, New York and dozens of others.

Our team looks forward to working with you from enrollment to employment to help you fulfill your professional career goals.

“Being a graduate of the University of Florida Levin College of Law is valuable anywhere in the county. I live in New York City and I run across lawyers from the University of Florida and we have this immediate connection. You want to stay in touch with them.”

“My professors provided support throughout every step of the job search process. Additionally, the alumni in New York read my resume, prepared me for interviews, and made time to meet with me whenever I came to the city. Members of the UF Law community not only supported my pursuit of a dream job; they were invested in it.”

“There are days when I go to work and if a client has a crisis, you drop what you’re doing, you go to the airport and you fly across the globe. In the last five years I’ve been on the ground in 70 different countries doing internal investigations. I now see the need to be bilingual, because in a lot of the countries they don’t speak in English.”
