Summer or Post-Graduate Opportunities?

COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our economy and the legal industry is no exception. Some employers are no longer able to host summer interns and we anticipate even more disruption to the legal market in the months ahead. If you have a position open at your current place of employment or if you learn of an open summer or post-graduate legal position (junior positions, in particular), we'd love to hear about it. If you have a complete job description with instructions on how to apply, wonderful! If not, just send what you have, along with any contact information for the position, and we'll do the follow-up. Send the posting, or any questions that you might have, to You can help SLS students and your fellow alumni just by clicking the "forward" button on your email. Thank you from the Office of Career Services!
