Welcome to the Cardozo Law Center for Professional Development (CPD). The center helps students develop the skills needed to navigate the current legal market.
CPD is designed to complement Cardozo's curriculum, clinical programs, and simulation courses. Students learn competencies that practitioners and employers have identified as very important, including thinking creatively and strategically to meet client needs; problem solving; negotiation; building relationships with colleagues and clients; communication skills; and how to manage projects and people. In addition, the center assists students in understanding the basic principles of finance and the business of law.
