The seven counselors in the Office of Career Services, all of whom have spent time as practicing attorneys, provide assistance during all phases of students' career development while at Cardozo and beyond.

LL.M. students benefit from the individualized service of a dedicated LL.M. advisor who plans and executes programming specific to LL.M. students, including resume writing workshops and interviewing and networking skills training. OCS also provides myriad opportunities to hear from and meet with practicing attorneys, including panel discussions with alumni and practitioners; informal practice-profile lunches, where Cardozo alumni discuss their jobs as well as the career paths they have explored and job search strategies they have implemented; and Practice Area Expos, where students have an opportunity to network with large numbers of attorneys from individual practice areas in one evening.

The following LL.M.-specific programming complements the services offered to the entire Cardozo student population:

  • The LL.M. Career Services Manual, distributed at orientation, is designed to get you started early on developing your postgraduation plans.
  • Twice-yearly resume- and cover-letter-writing workshops are aimed at helping you prepare an effective legal resume, paying special attention to converting curriculum vitae (CVs) to the resume style preferred by U.S. legal employers.
  • Interview and networking skills workshops teach techniques for networking effectively and succeeding in an interview.
  • LL.M. alumni panels bring LL.M. alumni living in the New York metropolitan area back to Cardozo to share their secrets of passing the bar and finding legal employment.
