MSU College of Law

Career Exploration & Support

The Career Services Office (CSO) offers an array of services and programs that will be a vital part of your professional development as an aspiring attorney. Starting in your 1L year, you’ll have one-on-one meetings with the CSO career advisor who will assist you throughout your time at MSU Law.

Your CSO advisor will help familiarize you with the legal profession, identify and target potential career opportunities, and map out and implement action plans. Although you will have primary responsibility for your own career search, the CSO team will provide the support, guidance, and resources you need.

The CSO regularly holds career exploration and networking events to introduce you to the range of career options for attorneys and help you build a professional network. CSO presentations feature attorneys and other guest speakers who provide insights into specific practice areas, government employment, judicial clerkships, public interest careers, and the versatility of a Juris Doctor degree.
