Employers

The University of Chicago Law School is consistently ranked as one of the premier law schools in the nation.  Our alumni are fully engaged in careers in every legal setting and practice law in every dimension imaginable.  Each year, our graduates accept employment in more than half of the nation's fifty states, as well as in countries around the globe.  Historically, 98% of each class is employed at graduation, and 75-80% of these alumni begin their professional careers in private firms.  The remainder of each class is typically dispersed to judicial clerkships, public service, and the business sector.

The Office of Career Services will be your primary point of contact at the Law School. Together with our students and graduates, employers complete the triad of core clients we serve.

We strive to:

  • build and foster communication between you and our students and alumni
  • assist you in promoting your opportunities and meeting your hiring needs
  • create, build, and sustain a dynamic working relationship between you and the Law School

The above menus will acquaint you with the array of services we extend to employers seeking assistance in hiring our students or experienced graduates.  We encourage you to contact us at career_services@law.uchicago.edu if you need further information or assistance.
