Career Services Programs
One of the opportunities Indiana Tech Law School students enjoy but which can also be a challenge is the topic of how to choose the best fit for their individual career from amongst the wide range of legal or law-related positions. Indiana Tech Law School is extremely diligent with providing information and resources to our students regarding how to choose that perfect career path. Some of the resources offered to students during their quest for the perfect career choice include:
Career Day – Professionals join our law school team for a day and provide information and exposure to students regarding positions which are available in law-related fields.
Professionalism Course – First year law students participate in various panel discussions with members of the bar and bench to learn what it really means to be a practicing attorney.
Symplicity Software – Online software is made available to all students and potential employers. Employers utilize the software to post job positions and students have access to this software in order to apply for the posted positions.
Externship Program – Students are afforded the opportunity to obtain practical on-the-job experience in either a judicial, governmental, or non-profit organization and earn academic credit at the same time. This opportunity provides legal work experience to students beginning in their second year giving them the opportunity to be exposed to different legal career choices.
Pro Bono Program – Students work in law related positions on a volunteer basis and earn pro bono credit hours toward their graduation requirements. This experience also exposes students to different areas of law related fields which they may find they are duly suited for as a career choice.
Career Counseling – Individual career counseling begins as early as November of the 1L year in order to help guide students with their career choices.
Career Services Office Workshops – Several workshops are held throughout the academic year in order to assist students with the development of resume writing and job interviewing skills.
On Campus Interviews (OCI) – Twice per year, law students have the opportunity to bid for interviews for summer internship opportunities. Employers from the legal community post their job positions and selected students are subsequently interviewed by the employer on site here at Indiana Tech Law School.
