Moritz Career Development Office

We encourage Moritz law students seeking career advice to contact the Career Development Office. At their website, you will find job opportunities, videos, ways to identify your strengths, and more. The Career Services Handbook is a great starting point.

If you have questions, be sure to consult the Career Development staff.

Finding Career Books in the Moritz Law Library

Career Resources books can be found in several places in the Moritz Law Library. Due to COVID-19, all library stacks are closed for students, faculty, and staff. Requests may be placed in the library catalog and library staff will pull items for you or scan pages of books for you. When your request is ready, an email notification will be sent to you. 

  • The most recent books about job searching, practice areas, and introduction to practice are located in our Reserve Room on the Job Resources shelves.
  • Other books, including general books about law practice, can be found either in the Reserve Room or on the third floor of the library.  The locations are displayed in the catalog records, so take note of the floor along with the call number.

Searching the library catalog is often a good place to start any research.  The main subject heading for law career resources is "Law-Vocational Guidance--U.S."  Key words work, too.  For example, if you want to work in environmental law, try this search:  careers in environmental law. 

Moritz library users have access to three catalogs:
