  • CAREERS

  • THE CAREER SERVICES PROGRAM at the University of Virginia School of Law

    is one of the most successful among national law schools and provides

    students with a wide range of job opportunities across the nation and abroad.

    VIRGINIA enjoys a reputation for producing lawyers who not only master

    the intellectual challenges of legal practice, but also contribute broadly to the

    institutions they join through strong leadership and interpersonal skills.

    As a result, private- and public-sector employers heavily recruit Virginia

    students each year. Graduates start their careers across the country with large

    and small law firms, government agencies and public interest groups.
