The Career Services Office (CSO) is committed to assisting students and graduates
of Memphis Law with job search and professional development needs.
Our staff strives to maximize students’ employment by marketing to employers and promoting
placement opportunities. Throughout the year, we present programs and panels offering
opportunities to learn about a variety of career paths and effective job search strategies
and to network with practicing attorneys and Memphis Law alumni.
The CSO is designed to teach career planning and job search skills as well as to facilitate
access to employers and employment resources. Our office does not guarantee jobs or
placement services, but works with students and alumni to ensure that they possess
the skills necessary to conduct a successful job search at any point in their career.
