Our Services

We invite JD alumni who are seeking positions or are planning a career change to make an appointment with one of our alumni advisors. Advisors will work with you to define your goals, develop your job search strategy, research potential employers, review your application materials, and hone your networking and interview skills.

We aim to provide support for whatever job search and career transition issues that may arise. Our ability to offer continuous and regular support may be limited by the volume of alumni seeking our services. Every effort will be made to provide individual alumni with resources, contacts, and procedural guidance in each meeting to allow them to continue the search independently and/or with the support of other industry professionals.

Appointments are available during most times of the year to discuss a variety of job and career transition issues. During certain times of the year, the availability of one-on-one counseling may be limited due to major OCS, Law School or University events, as well as professional staff schedules.

All Alumni appointments and services are offered virtually by Zoom or phone.

Judicial Clerkships

Judicial clerkships, as you know, are typically one or two year salaried, post JD positions with federal, state, local or administrative law judges. Clerkships can provide valuable experiences even for alumni who have already spent time practicing law -- and an increasing number of judges now prefer candidates who have some practice experience. Moreover, a judicial clerkship provides high quality research and writing experience, an opportunity to gain invaluable knowledge of court or administrative agency procedures and a chance to develop a lifelong mentoring relationships with a judge.

For additional information on clerkships, interested alumni should check the clerkship website and resources using the below web address.

Moreover, alumni may want to reach out to Michele Hoff, Director for Judicial Clerkships at mh1845@georgetown.edu or call her at 202-662-9612.
