The Office of Graduate Careers offers one-on-one counseling appointments for LL.M. students and alumni who have graduated in the past three years. Each of our career advisors will be available during select hours each week to meet with you. During an appointment, you may ask an advisor about job search strategies, discuss comments that you have received on your resume or cover letter, and seek advice on any other career or professional development issue.
To set up an appointment, you will need to use Acuity Scheduling, our online scheduling program. Once you arrive on Acuity Scheduling, the system will ask you which type of appointment you would like to schedule.
For part-time LL.M. students and other students who may be working during the day, we encourage you to book an appointment with us using Acuity Scheduling and note that you will need to conduct it over the phone or Zoom. If you must make an appointment outside of working hours, please e-mail us at the Office of Graduate Careers to set up an appointment outside of this scheduling system.
For quick questions, we offer Drop-In Hours from noon to 1:00 p.m. Drop-In Hours are held daily during the academic year. Please check the calendar on our main page for any changes to our schedule.
