Make a Counseling Appointment
Introduction to Counseling Appointments and Instructions
Graduate Career and Professional Development offers one-on-one counseling appointments for LL.M. students. Each of our advisers will be available during select hours each week to meet with you. During an appointment, you may ask an adviser about job search strategies, discuss comments that you have received on your resumes and cover letters, and seek advice on any other career or professional development issue. Current students are permitted to make appointments beginning the week after Orientation.
To set up an appointment, you will need to use Acuity Scheduling, our online scheduling client. Once you arrive on Acuity's Web site, the system will ask you which type of appointment you would like to schedule. The five types of appointments are the General Counseling Appointment, the Mock Interview Appointment, the Alumni Career Counseling Appointment, and the Externship Counseling Appointment.
