The Career & Professional Development Office provides several important services and resources designed to assist UW law students with developing as professionals and planning a successful career search. Employers advertising employment opportunities through the Office agree to abide by the Equal Employment Opportunity and Non-Discrimination policies adopted by the University of Wyoming and the College of Law.

The Office encourages all students to attend individual counseling sessions at least every semester to help you explore your interests and develop a job search strategy tailored to your interests, goals, credentials, and skills.
UW Career Connections is the University of Wyoming College of Law's online job bank and web-based recruiting system. Students may access the system through the UW Career Connections icon at the right of the screen. Explore the "Jobs" section for current openings and apply directly to employers. Upload resumes, cover letters, transcripts, and writing samples in the "Document" section. UW Career Connections is a one-stop resource designed to streamline the job search.
Additional resources are available in the Quick Links on right side of the UW Career Connections homepage and under the Resources/Document Library link.
Each semester a number of employers elect to interview students on campus for internships and post-graduate employment. Interested employers contact the Career Services Office and OCI opportunities are advertised to all students on UW Career Connections. Interview times and dates for selected applicants may be scheduled by the employer directly with the student or through the Office and the student.
The Office offers workshops and events designed to assist students in the development of professional skills and exploration of career goals. Workshop topics include practice area exploration, business communication, professional writing, interviewing skills, networking techniques, social etiquette, and proper business attire.
The Career Services library is located in the office of the Director of Career & Professional Development and in the law library. The collection contains informative resources about legal and alternative career paths, professional development, and job search tools. New materials are added often.
