1L CSO Curriculum


1L CSO Orientation

All 1Ls are required to attend a 1L CSO Orientation in November.  During Orientation, students will be introduced to the services we provide; find out basic information such as who we are, where we are located, and how to schedule an appointment; be provided with access to Symplicity; and hear a short presentation on 1L summer jobs.  

In addition, students will receive a 1L Guide at Orientation.  This guide, along with the Orientation PowerPoint, can be accessed through the document library located in Symplicity.

January One-on-One Appointments

Along with being required to attend Orientation, all 1Ls are also required to schedule a mandatory one-on-one appointment with Career Services in January.  The purpose of the meeting is to help 1Ls create a strategy in planning and preparing for their careers.

Before the January meeting, we will send a short questionnaire to have students complete and bring with them to the meeting.  In addition, students will need to draft a legal resume prior to the January meeting.  We will provide tips on ways to strengthen your resume during the one-on-one.

To sign up for a one-on-one January appointment, please stop by the CSO.  Stephanie Hope has the sign in sheet at her desk.
