Center for Professional Development

The Center for Professional Development empowers SU School of Law students and alumni to achieve their professional goals.  We provide personalized career support to maximize marketability and connect students and alumni to a diverse range of employment opportunities.

What we do:

Counseling: CPD counselors meet with you one-on-one to help identify your interests and career goals and to create personalized job search strategies based on your specific objectives.

Materials Review and Mock Interviews: We revise resumes, cover letters, and personal statements, as well as conduct mock interviews. We can also arrange for you to have a mock interview with an alumni practitioner.

Skills Seminars & Trainings: CPD hosts a series of seminars and trainings during the school year designed to advance your job search, refine your application materials, and improve your interviewing and networking skills. We also host information sessions and panel discussions with practitioners to educate you about various career paths, including traditional and non-traditional legal careers. Current students can view recordings of our seminars here

Career Fairs & Networking Events: CPD sponsors networking workshops, speed networking events, and practice-area-specific networking opportunities to connect you to the legal community. CPD also brings employers to you for Fall and Spring On-Campus Interviewing Programs as well as promotes local and national career fairs.
